An SCI produces immediate physical impairments resulting in a changed body, which can then have physical, emotional, and(More)
Laparoscopic surgery requires new methods of technical competency evaluation, as well as training. The first purpose was to assess the differences in motion characteristics between the tip of the instrument and the wrist. The second purpose was to determine whether similar control strategies are used to move instruments in virtual reality and bench model(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of our study was to investigate the impact of distracting noise on the performance on a simulated orthopedic bone drilling skill when that noise blocks routine auditory feedback associated with the sounds of the drill. METHODS Medical students (n=11), intermediate residents (postgraduate years 3-5, n=10) and surgeons (n=8) each(More)
Computer-assisted analysis of wrist movement has recently emerged as an objective laparoscopic performance evaluation method. The first purpose of this study was to assess the differences in motion characteristics between the tip of the instrument and the wrist. The second purpose was to describe the control strategies used to move laparoscopic instruments.(More)
