Abstract

This paper contributes ReflectiveSpineVR, an immersive spine surgery simulation enriched with interaction history capabilities aimed to support effective learning and training. The provided interaction history features are based on a design study we conducted exploring what makes an effective interaction history representation in spatial tasks. Existing surgical simulation systems only provide a crude way to supporting repetitive practice where the simulation needs to be restarted every time. By working closely with medical collaborators and following an iterative process, we present our novel approach to enriching users with nonlinear interaction history capabilities and supporting repetitive practice including how such features were realized in our ReflectiveSpineVR prototype. We conclude the paper with the results of a preliminary evaluation of ReflectiveSpineVR, highlighting the positive feedback regarding our history representation approach and the interface benefits.
