Abstract

© Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019. Virtual reality (VR) is increasingly being used as a training platform in many fields including surgery. However, practice on VR simulators alone is not sufficient to impart skills. Provision of performance feedback is essential to enable skill acquisition by ensuring that mistakes are identified and corrected, strengths are reinforced, and insights into consequences of actions are provided. As such, for a simulation system to be an effective training platform and to enable self-directed learning, it is imperative that automated performance feedback is provided by the system. Although there has been increased interest in the development of feedback meth..
