In the development of medical skill training systems, the efficiency of the system and the provision of quantitative feedback information to the trainee are very important. Furthermore, usage of the simulated operation platform should be as realistic as possible. In order to satisfy these requirements, we developed a robot to be used for airway management(More)
Airway management is a basic skill for emergency rescue. The operation of the bag valve mask (BVM) is also a key process. The BVM is used not only to provide oxygen but also to detect if the tracheal tube is inserted in the trachea or bronchus. Currently, there are many training platforms designed for training medical staff. Most of them can provide(More)
Neurologic examination takes an important role in diagnosis of the nerve system diseases. Neurologic medical staffs, especially the novices, need to be trained on this skill. There are many methodologies which can help to accumulate experiences, such as watching video, reading books, making use of the simulated patient (SP), and so on. However, the best way(More)
Neurologic examination procedures require not only abundant knowledge but also prominent skills. During medical education and training, several methods will be put to use such as watching video, reading books, making use of the simulated patient (SP), and so on. These can help medical staffs, especially novices, to master the skills and accumulate(More)
In recent years advanced robotic technology has seen more use in the medical field to assist in the development of Active Training systems. Such training systems must fulfill the following criteria: they must provide quantitative information, must simulate the real-world conditions of the task, and assure training effectiveness. For these reasons, we have(More)
The cranial nerves examination is one part of neurological examination. Neurologic medical staffs, especially the novices, need to be trained and grasp this skill. There are various methodologies to help the trainee to accumulate experiences. However, the best way is to practice on the real patient. The methods have their own drawbacks such as lack of(More)
