Title:

    Robotic Surgical training simulation for dexterity training of hands and fingers (LESUR)

Abstract:


    We present a software simulation system called LEap SURgical simulator (LESUR), which incorporates a human computer interface device, Leap, developed by Ultraleap Inc., to give users training in using their hands and fingers in a dexterous way, especially for surgeon trainees. There are two interaction systems in the simulator. One is for coarser dexterity training using a Kuka style robotic arm (Leapulator), and the other is a low-cost method for surgical training that can be used with a Da Vinci-like robotic surgical system. Existing surgical simulators, like the 3D systems’ Touch and Phantom devices, do not give enough dexterity training for finger motion. In particular, for laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgical systems, it is necessary to acquire skills with fine finger motion and dexterity. Our simulation system aims at developing superior expertise for trainees. We use a Leap motion device to capture the finger motion and a two-mode simulator to provide different levels of dexterity training.
