Direct Surgeon Control of the Computer in the Operating Room
This paper describes the design and evaluation of a joystick-like device that allows direct surgeon control of the computer in the operating room. The device contains no electronic parts, is easy to use, is unobtrusive, has no physical connection to the computer, and makes use of an existing surgical tool. The device was tested in comparison to a mouse and to verbal dictation.
