Abstract

Immersion Medical and the Uniformed Services University of Health Science (USUHS), aims establish the feasibility of a medical training simulator for Central Venous Catheterization (CVC). The proposed project involves several technical advances. Tactilefeedback user interface hardware designs will be researched to serve as a realistic proxy for catheters and other devices used during CVC. This interface device is anticipated to require force feedback in three axes: pitch, yaw and translation. Innovative
