Medical Application
- Jan 22, 2018 -

The application of VR in medicine has very important practical significance. In a virtual environment, a virtual human body model can be established. By means of a trackball, HMD, and sensory gloves, students can easily understand the structure of various internal organs in the human body, which is much more effective than the existing textbook-based approach. Researchers Pieper and Satara built a virtual surgical trainer based on two SGI workstations in the early 1990s for leg and abdomen surgery simulations. This virtual environment includes a virtual operating table and surgical lights, virtual surgical tools such as scalpels, syringes, surgical forceps, and virtual human models and organs. With HMD and sensory gloves, the user can perform surgery on a virtual mannequin. However, the system needs to be further improved. For example, it is necessary to improve the environmental authenticity, increase the network function so that it can train multiple users at the same time, or can work under the guidance of field experts. VR technology has very important meanings in predicting the outcome of surgery and improving the living conditions of disabled people and even in the development of new drugs.
