Summary This paper discusses the design of a virtual reality (VR) training system for micro-robotic cell injection. A brief explanation of cell injection and the challenges associated with the procedure are first presented. This is followed by discussion of the skills required by the bio-operator to achieve successful injection, such as accuracy, trajectory and applied force. The design of the VR system which includes the visual display, input controllers, mapping strategies, haptic guidance and output data is then discussed. Initial evaluation of the VR system is presented including analysis and discussion based on conducted user evaluations. Finally, given the findings of the initial evaluation, this paper concludes that an effective haptically-enabled virtual cell injection training system is feasible, and recommendations for improvement and future work are given.
