A BIOMECHANICAL AND KINESIOLOGICAL APPROACH IN THE TEACHING OF EFFICIENT SURGICAL SKILLS TO MEDICAL STUDENTS
Keywords: surgical skills, occupational biomechanics, teaching, movement efficiency
AbstractA competency-based surgery residents teaching and training program including a biomechanical and kinesiological approach was developed in order to improve procedural learning and mastery of invasive skills. Principles of biomechanics and kinesiology have been taught and applied to many aspects of surgical tasks, including instrument holding and manipulation, body positioning and posture, segments alignment. Results demonstrate more precise movements and more efficient performance of surgical tasks in residents participating in the program.
