Abstract:

India's medical education domain is one of the largest in the world. Medical Simulation aims to provide a medically accurate simulation that benefits the medical students to learn and understand any medical cases. Medical Simulations facilitates students with interactive learning and real-time feedback which does not risk the patient's life. Simulations can be performed any number of time until they have build their knowledge base and confidence in the given medical case. We propose a medically realistic cataract surgery simulation developed with a game engine. The users will be able to interact and use the on screen elements using hand gestures. A Motion recognition device captures every hand movement of the users and the simulation responds accordingly to provide feedback in real-time. Every movement is accurately tracked in the simulation and has a significant outcome on the subject based on the type of simulation. The simulated medical procedures for cataract surgery include using Surgical Tools, Surgical Procedures, Artificial Lens Implantation etc. Medical Simulation is being designed to provide an easy to use learning environment to replicate the clinical scenarios and allow features such as interactively practicing and providing feedbacks for medical skills development.
