Hybrid Surgical Simulators - It’s all about haptics


Date: Monday, 12th of November, 2018, 1-2pm
Place: Seminar room 1, ground floor, ICT building

Abstract

In the past years the Research Group for Surgical Simulators Linz (ReSSL) has developed hybrid surgical simulators for different applications. A special focus of the work was on the development of artificial bones and soft tissue providing realistic biomechanical properties. Considerable effort was put into the validation of the developed patient phantoms in reference to human counterpart. Within this talk the obtained results are going to be presented.

CV

Andreas Schrempf is Professor for Biomechanics and Computer Modeling and Simulation at the Department of Medical Engineering at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences. His research interests concern modeling and simulation in biomechanics and biomedical engineering as well as system identification and control theory. He received his master degree and PhD at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz in 1998 and 2004 respectively.

After working as a senior researcher at the Linz Competence Center in Mechatronics, he moved to the University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria in 2005. He heads the Research Group for Surgical Simulators Linz (ReSSL - ressl.fh-linz.at) which is concerned with the development of hybrid surgical simulators.
