Control of laparoscopic instrument motion in an inanimate bench model: implications for the training and evaluation of technical skills.


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)
