Design and Evaluation of a Novel Haptic Interface for Endoscopic Simulation
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Evren Samur,Lionel Flaction,Hannes Bleuler
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 301-311
Inspection of the colon with an endoscope for early signs of cancer (colonoscopy) has become an extremely widespread procedure, since early treatment radically improves the outlook of patients. The procedure requires a close coordination between the sense ...
A Haptic Knob with a Hybrid Ultrasonic Motor and Powder Clutch Actuator
Found in: World Haptics Conference
By Dominique Chapuis, Xavier Michel, Roger Gassert, Chee-Meng Chew, Etienne Burdet, Hannes Bleuler
Issue Date:March 2007
pp. 200-205
In haptics, the forces to be displayed vary widely in terms of magnitude and bandwidth. A single actuator can hardly comply with these requirements. It has thus been proposed to combine electrical motors and passive devices in a hybrid actuator to cover a ...
A real-time simulator for interventional radiology
Found in: Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Virtual reality software and technology (VRST '08)
By Evren Samur, Fei Wang, Hannes Bleuler, Lindo Duratti
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 1-2
Interventional radiologists manipulate guidewires and catheters and steer stents through the patient's vascular system under X-ray imaging for treatment of vascular diseases. The complexity of these procedures makes training mandatory in order to master ha...
