Abstract: A low cost solution for virtual reality laparoscopic training is presented in this paper (VRLSS – Virtual Reality Laparoscopic Simulator). The objective of this product is to provide the medical community an affordable low cost solution to train themselves. Even though several simulators are available on the market with high standards and advanced technologies, their use is extremely limited due to the economic costs involved. But the laparoscopic surgery’s success is greatly dependent on surgeon’s skills and training because Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions using several specialized instruments. This approach ensures that any surgical trainee or medical student can afford a virtual reality laparoscopy trainer to train themselves. The system is easily upgradable and extensible that can provide a wide variety of surgeries and tasks to train with. The developed prototype consists of a set of inexpensive sensors and two webcams. Video image processing and microcontroller based interface have been used as the main technical aspects.
