Abstract:This paper describes the development of the Buzz Wire Simulator, an economical low fi laparoscopy simulator. The first and main goal of this research is to develop a low-fi laparoscopy simulator for studying learning of complex motor skills. A simulator which resembles an existing, leading high-fi laparoscopy simulator and therefore also resembles a laparoscopy procedure. Learning laparoscopy through simulation is a viable alternative to other methods such as apprenticeships. This is particularly true as it obviates students from the consequences of performing under pressure. A range of benefits are associated with virtual simulator-based laparoscopy research which suggests that its use in research institutions is almost an imperative. However, the high costs associated with implementing virtual simulator laparoscopy research precludes its extensive use. There is therefore an urgent need for an inexpensive / economical virtual simulator solution for research into the learning of laparoscopy.
