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 force feedback devices, the developed methods provide a superior tactile feedback (sense of touch) for manipulation of various tissue types. As in reality, trainees working with surgical instruments can feel even very fine structures of a surface, and work on them with very high precision. The patented methods are used for all Voxel-Man simulators.
