Title:
Computer simulation for ergonomic improvements in laparoscopic surgery 
Abstract:
It is the aim of this study to reduce the stress and strain of the medical staff during laparoscopic operations, and, simultaneously, to increase the safety and efficiency of an integrated operation room (OR) by an ergonomic redesign. This was attempted by a computer simulation approach using free modelling of the OR and 3D human models (manikins). After defining ergonomically dqidealdq postures, optimal solutions for key elements of an ergonomic design of the OR (position and height of the imag...    »
