Title: HAPTIC SYSTEM FOR VESTIBULAR SIMULATION WHICH PROVIDES AN EXPERIENCE FOR SIMULATING THE BEHAVIOUR OF PHENOMENA RELATED WITH HUMAN BALANCE FOR TRAINING FUTURE HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a haptic system for vestibular simulation which provides an experience for simulating the behaviour of phenomena related with human balance for training future healthcare professionals, which comprises a phantom made up of a head or a head plus a body of a life-sized mannequin (whether a whole body or half a body comprising head and torso, with or without arms) of an adult person placed on a stretcher, desk or work table, comprising a 3D vestibular simulation sub-system and an ocular simulation sub-system, in which the two sub-systems are arranged inside the head of said mannequin and connected to a central processing unit that includes at least one specific software program, so that the information collected by the two sub-systems is interpreted by said central processing unit and reproduces in real time the movements in a three-dimensional model of the inner ear and its semi-circular channels, as well as a real-time representation of the vestibulo-ocular reflex via the movement of a 3D model of the eyes and the movement of the eyes in said mannequin, which is built into a stretcher, table or desk in an articulated fashion and the base thereof is seated on a pivot that allows it to rotate about its own axis through 360º, and in addition can remain in vertical position (simulating a seated patient) and move up to 90º towards the foot of the stretcher and 90º towards the head of same, ending up in horizontal position (lying down).
