Augmented Reality Trainer for Laparoscopic Surgery
Problem:No haptic feedback to train for laparoscopic surgery
NEED Statement: To provide a middle ground called as the TrainAR Simulator which is between basic laparoscopic torso simulator and modern VR trainer.
Beneficiary: Surgeons working with AR or VR
- Provide a laparoscopic torso containing dummy organs such as liver or internal bladder.
- Model the dummy organs as closely to their respective counterparts as possible using unique markers to distinguish between the organs.
- A laporoscopic video is displayed and the dummy elements are shown with actual colors of the organs.
Result: The TrainAR creates realistic scenarios for surgeons and students to practice. Helps extensively to prepare for performing laparoscopic surgery.
