Haptic Device Medical Training


Thursday 4 August, 8 - 9 am
Quicktake
Room 502B

One of the most difficult challenges of medical training is accurately simulating real-world conditions. This presentation addresses one solution for training students in the use of an endovaginal ultrasound. Due to the nature of the procedure, precautions must be taken to minimize patient discomfort. With a virtual training system, these and other issues can be addressed more than adequately.
