Amr presented a paper to the IASTED CGIM’12 conference about the DHS surgeon virtual training project. This paper reports on the development of the 2 3D tracking prototypes for virtual reality training of surgeons (in vitro / Off patient), especially for the Dynamic Hip Screw surgical procedure (in particular; the insertion of the guide-wire). The aim is to develop the cognitive coordination, in particular the Brain/Hands/Eyes coordination that is crucial for such procedure. But through an affordable system that uses Commercial off-the-shelf (COTs) components.
This work is in collaboration with Prof. Maqsood, Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon in the Lincoln Hospital.
