Design of Class Components for Laparoscopy Surgery Simulation with Haptic Elements: A Case Study of SPLasH

Norkhairani Abdul Rawi, Halimah Badioze Zaman, and Azlina Ahmad
Abstract—Minimal invasive surgery or laparoscopy has taken part especially for pediatrics. Traditionally, medical students learn surgical skills through the mentorship model during their residency training. As technology evolves, more and more applications, simulations and system are built as aids to medical students in acquiring surgical skills. This research is conducted to identify how haptics technology can play part in shaping student skills in Surgery Department of HUKM. This paper will discuss the second phase of the research: Design and Development that focus on simulation class structure based on preliminary analysis. Results show that current training approaches have some weaknesses that can be replaced by applying simulations with haptics devices. Proposed structure will be tested in development stage. It is a hope that this research will enrich the literature review for visual informatics area.

Index Terms—Haptic, laparoscopy, simulation, surgery.
