Prototype Development of a Training Model


ISA worked in collaboration with the AdventHealth Nicholson Center to develop and refine a psychometric robotic skills device to assess the proficiency and technical skills of the surgeon in 3D. The domes were developed to be reusable, but covered with an artificial skin that could be replaced. Each device allows the surgeon to accomplish 7 tasks corresponding to essential robotic skills.
