In this direction, an insight into simulators' didactic design and technical development is provided, by describing the methodology followed in the building of the SINERGIA simulator. It departs from a clear analysis of training needs driven by a surgical training curriculum. Existing solutions and validation studies are an important reference for the definition of specifications, which are described with a suitable use of simulation technologies. Five new didactic exercises are proposed to train some of the basic laparoscopic skills. Simulator construction has required existing algorithms and the development of a particle-based biomechanical model, called PARSYS, and a collision handling solution based in a multi-point strategy. The resulting VR laparoscopic simulator includes new exercises and enhanced simulation technologies, and is finding a very good acceptance among surgeons.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/76388||ISSN:||0169-2607||DOI:||10.1016/j.cmpb.2006.12.002||Source:||Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine [ISSN 0169-2607], v. 85 (3), p. 273-283, (Marzo 2007)|
