Certify arthroscopic skills

Certify arthroscopic skills

This training program certifies basic arthroscopic skills for the right knee. The trainee will first learn to create space at the anatomical landmarks by moving the lower leg. In the next phase the trainee will learn to work with the 30 degree endoscope. In the more advanced tasks the trainee has to perform a knee inspection using instrument and camera together and perform a basic menisectomy. In the near future the certification will be extended with a shoulder curriculum.

Tracking parameters are time, instrument path length, collisions, errors and camera aiming.
