Robotically assisted surgery stands to further revolutionize the medical
The Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons
(SAGES) Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) program contains
curriculum that includes both a cognative and psychomotor skills. In this research
the use of FLS Block Transfer task is used to evaluate the performance of
surgeons’ teleoperating the University of Washington Surgical robot. The use of
the FLS Trainer Box and accessories kit provides a well-defined series of tasks that
can be repeated by any researchers working in the field of surgical robotics so that
systems can be evaluated using a common method.
