Abstract

We aimed to develop a virtual surgery system capable of performing surgical maneuvers on elastic organs, the structure of which has been obtained from a patient. We tried to manipulate three dimensional (3D) organs as elastic models by hand or surgical tools in real time in a virtual environment. And we tried to obtain the sense of touch by using force feedback device with manipulator attached to the thumb, forefinger and middle finger of the operator.
