Such a system registers hand movements in great detail. Trainees and their mentors receive useful data to evaluate and improve performance in complex surgical procedures.
“Recording movements alone is not enough,” says Gough Louis, one of the developers of the system. “Our approach is based on creating a catalog of records of experienced surgeons who have performed the same manipulations.”
Based on a comparison of the student’s actions with the catalog of records, the mobile application reports errors and generates recommendations.
“Despite the fact that over the last centurySurgical techniques have advanced significantly, teaching is still largely observational. Mentors look over the shoulders of interns to evaluate their work,” Louis says.
The developers note that full-fledged educationalsimulators tend to be expensive. Therefore, not all medical and educational centers can afford them. The low cost of the sensors makes the technology available for use in various hospitals and educational institutions.
