The use of a surgery training interface (STI) to guide optimal gaze control strategies during the acquisition of a laparoscopic skill
We have developed the surgery training interface (STI), an evidence based intervention designed to guide the gaze control of trainee surgeons whilst performing training tasks on a VT simulator. The STI software takes the live feed from the camera on a VT box and adapts the image so that only the relevant locations within the scene are visible. By simply highlighting the relevant locations and darkening out the irrelevant areas users are guided to adopt an optimal gaze control strategy which is indicative of an expert.
