The advancements in microscopy and more recently in neuro-endoscopy, have revolutionized the field of neurosurgery. Hand-held neurosurgical instruments are integral components of these procedures. However, these instruments have many limitations such as deprived ergonomics, constrained maneuverability and limited degrees of freedom. Hence, a need for developing better instruments is commonly felt by neurosurgeons. Also, the focus of modern neurosurgical training is now shifting towards simulation models. The baseline data of surgical instruments play a vital role in the development of virtual and physical simulators. A primary factor impeding development of novel instruments and simulators is the lack of comprehensive surgical instrument database.
