Computer-based surgical simulators such as the MIST-VR are able to provide scoring metrics such as time taken to complete a task, number of errors made, and economy of movement. Using MIST-VR's basic metrics, we explored the possibility of classifying skill levels using fuzzy logic. Our objective was to create a fuzzy classifier capable of classifying the performance of a subject training on a surgical simulator into 1 of 3 categories: Novice, Intermediate, and Expert. To accomplish this, we… CONTINUE READING
