Haptic feedback improves surgeons' user experience and fracture reduction in facial trauma simulation

Sabine Girod, MD, DDS, PhD, et al.

Using specialized computer software, surgeons can plan complex facial bone surgery using threedimensional X-ray data. Current systems do not allow the user to feel when virtual bone segments collide on the screen. Our new software system uses a haptic device connected to the computer, providing a sense of touch and interaction with images on the screen. In this study, the haptic system was significantly better than a nonhaptic system in virtual jaw fracture repair. The haptic system has the potential to benefit Veterans by allowing surgeons to plan complex jaw surgery in a way that is not currently possible.
