Abstract:

Medical education at university is mostly rather theoretical. Due to the lack of volunteers and proper pathologies, training is not possible at any time. To improve training and education in orthopedics the multi-modal Munich Knee Joint Simulator (MKS) with haptic, acoustic and visual feedback is being developed at Technische Universität München. Therefore, biomechanical models of an intact as well as a pathological knee joint have been implemented in the haptic and acoustic display of the MKS. Now an operator can feel the simulated biomechanics of a knee joint and hear uttering of the virtual patient when pain occurs. The visual display gives an insight into the knee joint and illustrates the joint’s biomechanics by displaying the movement of bones and the deformation of soft tissue while moving the artificial leg of the haptic display.
