Development of a VR-based injection training system using a standardized patient.
ABSTRACT We propose a VR based injection training system using Standardized Patient (SP) with an original haptic needle which can represent a haptic expression. SP is trained to realistically portray a real patient. In the proposed system, trainee can virtually puncture the SP using the haptic needle. In addition, the haptic needle can represent a haptic expression of needle insertion of the virtual anatomical model. By using the proposed system, trainee can feel virtual puncture as well as operating for real patient.
