Tech “They Do Not Achieve the Good Movement”

I’ve transcribed this video below for your pleasure, which will only increase when you hear the staccato voice over, but “srsly though,” says my friend Patrick, “it’s all about the moment he puts his fingers in the big V. ~wiggle.”
The birth simulator is composed of two partsa mechanical part and a virtual part. The birth simulator has four componentsa pelvic model, a head linked to a pneumatic actuator, and a forceps. The last mechanical part of the birth simulator are Simpson forceps with two spatial location centers. The head is equipped with a third miniaturized sensor.
My team has designed a new procedure to teach forceps blade placement. Often junior doctors can place the first blade but have a lot difficulties to place the second blade. They do not achieve the good movement. The teaching procedure that was designed by my team allows to train junior doctor to forceps blade placement.
We usehere you can seespheres that are represented on the screen, and the junior doctor has to go through the spheres in order to place the forceps. This allows to train for a complex movement. You can see here we go through the first sphere, second sphere, third sphere, fourth, and fifth sphere. And we do the complex procedure.
The birth simulator also allows the precise analysis of forceps blade trajectories. The screen display expert trajectories, and you can see a high level of repeatability. On the other hand, this screen displays junior doctor’s trajectories, and you can see low level of repeatability. Our goal is to increase the quality of teaching of obstetricians in order to decrease the morbiditymaternal morbidity as well as neo-natal morbidity.
