Adapting a Soft 2.5D Actuated Shape Display for Rebound Tenderness Simulation and Training

Tsimeris, Jessica; Stevenson, Duncan; Broughton, Michael; Gedeon, Tamas (Tom)


This paper presents our work towards adapting ForceForm, a 2.5D actuated surface, for use as a medical training apparatus for rebound tenderness, an application area which lacks prior research from computing researchers. Rebound tenderness is used by health practitioners to physically examine a patient’s abdomen by applying and then releasing pressure with the hands. This paper demonstrates a novel technique to allow an actuated shape display to detect interactions caused by the user pressing...[Show more]
