Modern tools often separate the visual and physical aspects of operation, requiring users to manipulate an instrument while viewing the results indirectly on a display. This can pose usability challenges particularly in applications, such as laparoscopic surgery, that require a high degree of movement precision. Magnification used to augment the view and, theoretically, enable finer movements, may introduce other visual-motor disruptions due to the apparent speed of the visual motion on screen… Expand
MagniFinger: Fingertip probe microscope with direct micro movements
TLDR
MagniFinger, a new finger-based microscope that allows users to magnify the contacting surface on their fingertips using two means of control: sliding and tilting, shortens the time of reaching targets compared to the simple sliding-based control. Expand
Micro-movements of varying difficulties: wrist and arm movements
TLDR
Results indicated that the linear relationship between MT and ID, typically observed for Fitts’ tasks, was observed and there were moderate decreases in MT as amplitude was decreased but only for high ID movements. Expand
Camera Placement in Simulated Laparoscopic Surgery Influences Performance
Laparoscopic surgery requires surgeons to view rotated visual feedback of the surgical field. However, systematic assessments of the effects of visuomotor rotations on performance have beenExpand
Sensorimotor control and linear visuomotor gains
TLDR
Non-constant but linear velocity-based control display gains tested suggested that the motion profile was planned by the central nervous system based on the visuomotor gain at maximum motor velocity, as common features were observed between the constant gain of 1 and the decreasing gain, and between the Constant gain of 3 and the increasing gain.

The Investigation of Laparoscopic Instrument Movement Control and Learning Effect
TLDR
The experimental results showed that there were significant differences between the three factors in movement time and in throughput, and the extended Fitts' law model was shown to better fit the data than the conventional model. Expand
Effects of control-display gain and postural control method on distal pointing performance
TLDR
The experimental results indicated that the wrist-based interactive method is a better interactive method for tasks where pointing speed is the highest priority and the 1.7 CD gain was found to cause significantly higher MT and ER and lower TP and subjective usability rating scores than wrist- and elbow-based pointing. Expand
Measuring the linear and rotational user precision in touch pointing
TLDR
This paper addresses the limit of user precision in pointing to a target when the finger is already in contact with a touch surface by developing a novel experimental protocol that improves the estimation of user's precision as compare to previous protocols. Expand
Optimizing the control of high-ID movements: rethinking the power of the visual display
TLDR
The results for Tests 1 and 2 indicated that total time and movement time for the Fittslog and Sinelog groups were reduced relative to the FITTs condition, and dwell time was significantly lower, and a larger proportion of movement time was spent in the acceleration portion of the movement. Expand
Towards assistive human-robot micro manipulation
TLDR
The results show that the proposed system outperforms the operators performing the same task with magnified visual feedback in terms of both completion time and number of successful insertions. Expand
Effects of dental magnification lenses on indirect vision: a pilot study.
TLDR
This pilot study examined the accuracy and efficiency of dental hygiene students' indirect vision skills while using traditional safety lenses and magnification lenses and found students are more efficient at identifying indirect vision points with the use of magnification lenses. Expand

Pointing movement visually controlled through a video display: adaptation to scale change
TLDR
The results show that adaptation to scale changes does not allow the achievement of the perception of a single working space but seems rather specific to each scale. Expand

TLDR
The results of pilot experiments show that performance of knot tying, a complex task, is affected by contrast sensitivity, which is a fundamental property of human vision. Expand
Effects of adaptation to altered display gain on the control of single aimed movements.
TLDR
The linear increase of movement time and feedback processing with gain and the unaltered spatial accuracy across conditions, suggested that participants actively adapted to the displayed visual information in altered gain conditions. Expand
Watching a cursor distorts haptically guided reproduction of mouse movement.
TLDR
Because participants did not achieve cursor-speed constancy across gain levels, visual speed was another cue to gain, and these cues failed to prevent visual distortion of movement reproduction. Expand

The impact of gain change on perceiving one's own actions
TLDR
An experiment using a digitizer tablet, in which different gains are introduced between the hand movement and the intended action effect presented on a display, supported the view that what counts for a successful tool use is the representation of the distal effect, not the proximal effect. Expand
Spatial Compatibility Effects With Tool Use
TLDR
Two distinct compatibility effects in tool use are pointed to: one that relates to the transformation of stimuli into goals and one that related to the Transformation of goals into movements. Expand
Context-dependent arm pointing adaptation
TLDR
The results demonstrate that contextual cues can be used to switch between multiple adaptive states, and provide support for the idea that static head orientation information is a crucial component to the arm adaptation process. Expand
Kinematic analysis of multiple constraints on a pointing task.
TLDR
It was found that target size influenced the shape of velocity profiles by elongating the duration of the corrective sub-movement phase, while movement distance scaled the entire velocity curve without affecting its shape. Expand
Development of a method for measuring movement-related effort
TLDR
The surprising finding of the first experiment suggests that Fitts' Law depends both on perception and on motor control. Expand
