Abstract

This paper presents a first step towards an implementation of surgeon's muscle-skeleton model for surgeon's gesture analysis in laparoscopy. This analysis represents a tool to assess surgical skills, to study ergonomics of surgical instruments and to define and design engineering specifications and requirements for surgical robotic system. Students from medicine faculty and skilled surgeons were employed for an experimental session using a virtual laparoscopic simulator. Movement was acquired by means of an Optical Localization System and processed by means of the biomechanical software platform LifeMOD-Adams.
