Reference tool kinematics-kinetics and tissue surface strain data during fundamental surgical acts on multi-layer tissue

Tyler Schimmoeller & Ahmet Erdemir
This site contains data to capture tissue-tool interactions of basic surgical acts performed on upper leg extremities. Tool positions and loads were measured while performing 16 different operations, which included 8 different techniques: indenting, pinching, cutting, widening, closing, everting, suturing, and retracting. In addition, 3D surface strain measurement was captured during initial indentation, pinching, and cutting trials at the skin surface. Further details of the analysis can be found in the publication "Reference tool kinematics-kinetics...
