This study establishes a practical environment for transferring knowledge on bioelasticity between expert and trainee medical practitioners. Through haptic interaction with a deformable virtual anatomical model, experts set the model's elasticity conditions by simulating a surgical procedure. Trainees experience the elasticity by attempting the same surgical manipulation.
