Haptic Rendering of Viscoelastic Properties of Tissues

O. Astley, V. Hayward We are investigating a computational method to render in real-time the viscoelastic properties of tissues, so that a user may experience a mechanical interaction with these tissues, provided that a haptic device of sufficient fidelity is available. Tissues properties are typically anisotropic and nonlinear, so specific methods need to be developed.
