Delft training system for keyhole surgery provides greater insight into forces

31 March 2014

Keyhole surgery is particularly difficult, so good training for surgeons is essential. Tim Horeman has improved several aspects of this training. He has demonstrated that force and motion measurements give an objective assessment of a surgeon’s skills, and that direct feedback on the force applied enhances the learning effect. On Tuesday 1 April, Horeman has been awarded his PhD at TU Delft for...Continue
