Haptically simulating soft tissue using spherical voxel and reactive agents
thesisposted on 2009-01-01, 00:00 authored by James Alexander. Mullins
This thesis describes technology developed by the author enabling trainee surgeons to perform needle insertion procedures with force feedback (haptics) on a virtual patient. Addition of the sense of touch to medical simulation is arguably the most important step forward in the evolution of haptic technology to this day.
