SimInsights developing surgical suturing training simulator

SimInsights is developing a surgical suturing training simulator in collaboration with researchers from Texas A&M University and with support from Qatar Foundation. This training simulator will allow medical students to perfect suturing skills using computer simulation. Alternative training approaches involve practicing on cadavers which are not always available and oranges, which are not realistic. The project will use high fidelity simulation techniques, real time computation, 3D computer graphics techniques and interfacing with high sampling rate haptic devices to provide a fully immersive experience to allow students to build dexterous manipulation skills in a safe environment at a very low cost.
