Abstract: Frequently, the human interface of a virtual reality system includes a 3D manipulator. In order to optimize the use of this device, the designer must take into account its mechanical characteristics. An obvious design criterion consists of maximizing the coincidence between the application 3D space and the physical volume where the manipulator provides its maximum performance. This paper explains in detail the analysis of manipulability for the PHANToM OMNi haptic device including the study of the manipulability distribution into its real workspace boundaries. As result of this study we will define a measure of the quality of the device placement inside the virtual reality system platform. We apply this measure for designing the mechanical configuration of a simulator for Minimally Invasive Arthroscopic Surgery.
