Abstract
Virtual Reality (VR)-based training has become a common practice in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) training. VR simulators and, more recently, serious games allow training skills with a high level of reproducibility. An important aspect of these systems is the fidelity offered compared to real OR situations [1]. Hardware interface plays an important role as the physical connection between learner and virtual world. This is achieved either by affixing sensors to real laparoscopic instruments or by using joystick-type constructs. Associated problems are their cost (acquisition and maintenance), bulkiness and modification of instruments' ergonomics, which may have an impact on fidelity. The goal of this work is to test the feasibility of employing the EVA Tracking System [2], a computer vision-based tracking system, to control a virtual MIS training application, a new serious game for technical skills' training, the Kheiron Training System (KTS) [3].
