Abstract/Artist Statement

A project is designed such that a surgeon can use a glove with sensors and memory attached to it so that the surgeon can perform precise and specific movements and the glove is able to record and save these movements that can later be used to instruct and reenact these to students who will copy and perform these movements on their own. The project consists of three main parts: the glove & sensor combination, the wireless transmitter & receiver, and a separate computer with a graphical user interface with a 3D hand for user interactment. The user’s hand will be displayed in 3D on a computer screen and the virtual hand will mimic the movement and positioning of the fingers and hand in real time. The glove will be able to record and playback movements that have been saved and will send data wirelessly from the sensors to a local computer for the user to interact with. The project will be powered through rechargeable batteries. Through the use of a user interface, a student can mimic movements with the glove and compare these to the instructor’s to give the student a score in their surgical performance. Overall this project helps students practice to become better surgeons to better help our society.
