I was awarded a poster prize at MMVR 2011 for a poster titled “Modification of Commercial Force Feedback Hardware for Needle Insertion Simulation”. The three page proceedings publication is available upon request. [bibtex-entry]

The poster abstract is:

A SensAble Omni force feedback device has been modified to increase the face validity of a needle insertion simulation. The new end effector uses a real needle hub and shortened needle shaft in place of the Omni’s pre-fitted pen shaped end effector. This modification facilitates correct procedural training through the simulation of co-located visual and haptic cues in an augmented reality approach to simulation. The development of the new end effector is described and a pictorial guide to its manufacture and the fitting process is provided. Three Omni devices have been modified for a full simulation validation.
