Abstract:This paper presents the design of the Salford Laparoscopic Feedback Simulators and Robot (SalFSAR). It is designed as a dual-purpose device i.e. as a laparoscopic manipulator for virtual reality (VR) simulation and also as a surgical robot. A VR environment has been developed to test the applicability of the device for assisting surgeons in laparoscopic surgery procedures.
