VOXEL-MAN has received U.S. Patent No. 8,396,698 entitled
Method for the simulation of the haptic of an interaction of a guided object with a virtual three-dimensional object
for its haptic rendering methods. In conjunction with industry standard haptic devices, they provide a highly realistic force feedback for the simulation of interventions. Numerous parameters such as drill type, rotational speed, angle, pressure, and tissue properties are taken into account.
As in reality, residents using the handpiece of a haptic device to guide a virtual instrument can feel even the finest structures of a surface, and work on them with unprecedented precision. The patented methods are used for all VOXEL-MAN surgical and dental training simulators.
