(EN) MEDICAL EXAMINATION TEACHING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ENSEIGNEMENT D'EXAMEN MEDICAL
Abstract
(EN)
A teaching system (10) for training students to perform exams performed manually inside a body cavity. The system (10) contains an anatomical simulator (12) made from a manikin (14). Manikin (14)has simulator cavities (11 and 15) an a tactile sensor (16) that is located within the manikin (14) so as to generate a signal in response to manual contact with an inside surface of the simulator cavity (11 or 15). System (10) also contains feedback presentation unit (18), which is in communication with sensor (16). To perform the exam, the student places a hand into the opening (20), which gives acces to cavity (15) and executes a series of steps. In one embodiment the system (10) is used to teach pelvic exams, wherein removable organs such as a uterus (22) and an attached cervix (24) are used in the anatomical simulator (12).

L'invention concerne un système d'enseignement (10) destiné à former les étudiants dans l'exécution d'examens effectués manuellement dans une cavité corporelle. Le système (10) contient un simulateur anatomique (12) constitué par un mannequin (14). Ce mannequin (14) possède des cavités de simulateur (11 et 15) et un capteur tactile (16) qui est situé dans le mannequin (14) de manière à produire un signal en réponse à un contact manuel avec une surface interne de la cavité du simulateur (11 ou 15). Le système (10) contient également une unité de présentation de rétroaction (18), qui est en communication avec le capteur (16). Pour effectuer l'examen, l'étudiant place une main dans l'ouverture (20), qui donne accès à la cavité (15), et exécute une série d'étapes. Dans l'un de ses modes de réalisation, le système (10) est utilisé pour enseigner des examens pelviens, des organes amovibles tels que l'utérus (22) et un col attaché (24) étant utilisés dans le simulateur anatomique (12).
