Demo Title: Demonstration of a GENI based application to support Virtual Reality based training activities in orthopedic surgery

One-sentence layman's description:

This innovative application show cases use of a Next Generation networking approach to support surgical training. Expert surgeons and medical residents can be at different locations but can interact using virtual reality based simulators and ultra-fast networks.

Demo description paragraph(s):

This demonstration involves highlighting a distributed approach to training orthopedic medical residents using Virtual Reality (VR) based simulation environments; this application exploits the capabilities of Global Environment for Network Innovation (GENI)'s national test bed infrastructure.  Our demonstration will show how expert surgeons in different hospitals can interact with medical trainees at others locations and teach them the fundamentals of orthopedic surgery. The high-definition multimedia streaming and haptic interfaces associated with the VR environment will enable trainees to remotely observe, participate and practice surgical techniques virtually from different locations (and also provides ‘on demand’ access to such medical educational and training resources).

The virtual environments will enable students to learn the appropriate way of performing orthopedic surgery. The traditional way of surgical teaching involves students first merely observing a ‘live’ surgery and gradually progressing to assisting experienced surgeons. Medical residents also learn through performing surgeries on cadavers; however, these approaches have limitations such as availability, cost and the remote possibility of infections, which limit their usefulness. A Virtual Reality based simulation environment is a practical compromise for addressing these concerns. We are working with Dr. Miguel Pirela-Cruz at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center (TTHSC) in El Paso, Texas.

We did an initial demonstration at GEC 21 which was well received. Our plans are to show the use of haptic interfaces at GEC 22 with the presence of Dr. Pirela-Cruz.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch, monitor): 5 - 7

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections): 4

Number of static addresses needed (if any): 4

Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI): both

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"): 1 standard size

Please locate two OKSTATE demos next to each other #1362 and #1366

Will you require 2 LCDs?

Thanks for the demo submission, I will follow up with confirmation of available resources.

Of note, NSF will be looking at this wiki page, so please feel free to update if you notice any errors or wish to update your demo description.
