Abstract

This work presents a virtual environment for the validation by experts of computer-assisted bone fracture reduction. This environment is composed of VR glasses and 3D controllers (HTC Vive) that allow interaction and immersion in the scene in a realistic way. The virtual environment developed allows loading fractured bone models (fragments) so that the specialist performs a virtual fracture reduction and its results can be used for the validation of algorithms and assisted reduction techniques. Once the fragments are loaded, the user can perform an interactive reduction of the fracture, visualizing the fragments in 3d from different views, moving the fragments in 3d and placing the fragments in space to observe the reduction in detail. Once completed, it allows the reduction to be exported so that it can be compared with other fracture reduction systems. The system has been tested by specialists in traumatology and a usability study has been carried out. Finally, the system has been empirically validated and used to compare the performance of other computer-assisted reduction systems.
