Abstract

The simulation of medical procedures through virtual reality (VR) system offers an opportunity to train medical students, paramedics and doctors across a range of specialists in a safe (risk-free), realistic and repeatable environment. It eliminates harmful consequences to patients and offers infinitely repeatable procedures. In this study, we developed an application of a “single Interrupted Suturing skill” that is used daily for various fields of surgery which is supervised by artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm. The automated graphical feedback and assessment procedures were simulated within the VR environment. The VR technologies for medical/clinical training has the potential to reduce service delivery costs significantly. The evaluation of the effectiveness and validity of the proposed system will be the focus of future research.
