Haptic feedback in the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK): a user study based on grasping, palpation and incision tasks.

Summary of "Haptic feedback in the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK): a user study based on grasping, palpation and incision tasks."

It was suggested that the lack of haptic feedback, formerly considered a limitation for the da Vinci robotic system, does not affect robotic surgeons because of training and compensation based on visual feedback. However, conclusive studies are still missing and the interest in force reflection is rising again.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.

The portion of an interactive computer program that issues messages to and receives commands from a user.

The study, based on direct observation, use of statistical records, interviews, or experimental methods, of actual practices or the actual impact of practices or policies.

The influence of study results on the chances of publication and the tendency of investigators, reviewers, and editors to submit or accept manuscripts for publication based on the direction or strength of the study findings. Publication bias has an impact on the interpretation of clinical trials and meta-analyses. Bias can be minimized by insistence by editors on high-quality research, thorough literature reviews, acknowledgement of conflicts of interest, modification of peer review practices, etc.

A microcomputer-based software package providing a user-friendly interface to the MEDLARS system of the National Library of Medicine.
