This study evaluates the effectiveness of a wheelchair simulator in the training of power wheelchair driving skills. Practice with the simulator takes place at home.
It is necessary to study the rugby tackle as it is associated with successful performance outcomes and is responsible for the majority of contact injuries. A novel collision sport simulator was develo...
Surgical simulators aimed at mimicking elements of rhinoplasty surgery, specifically those aimed at improving cartilage suturing, are not available. Here, we present a surgical simulator for spreader ...
Laparoscopic simulators help improve surgical skills in an ex vivo setting. New simulators incorporate force and motion assessment, but often at high financial cost. Our goal is to establish global ac...
The present study was performed to establish a novel ocular surgery simulator for training in peeling of the inner limited membrane (ILM). This simulator included a next-generation artificial ILM with...
Surgery is traditionally taught by using Halsteadian principle, which includes "see one, do one, teach one". This principle relies on sheer volume of surgical exposure rather than a specific course st...

Surgical techniques in which SUTURES are not applied to surgical wounds.
Sterile clothing worn during surgical procedures to protect the surgical site from sources of contamination.
Nonexpendable apparatus used during surgical procedures. They are differentiated from SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS, usually hand-held and used in the immediate operative field.
Surgical procedures performed using a computer that remotely controls surgical instruments attached to mechanical arms designed to perform the tasks of the surgeon.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
