Abstract: This poster presents a surgical training system for four medical punctures based on virtual reality and haptic feedback, including a client program developed in the Unity3D game engine and a server program developed by PHP. This system provides the immersive surgery simulation for thoracentesis, lumbar puncture, bone marrow puncture and abdominal paracentesis that we call four medical punctures. Trainers or teachers can release training tasks in which trainees or students are able to learn surgery skills at a 3D visual scene. Furthermore, they will feel a sense of immediacy when putting on the head-mounted display and with the help of haptic feedback. The training records will be put into database for analysis.
