Abstract

"Drilling is a major operation in bone surgery. The most common drilling operation in knee surgery is drilling with a 1/8" standard drill bit. The objective of this thesis work is initial development of PC-based virtual bone drilling force simulator. The simulator can be used for training of novice surgeons. The developed system consists of real time graphics, haptics and realistic force modeling for a 1/8" drill bit"--Abstract, leaf iii.
