    Abstract

    This paper summarises recent validation studies and evidence demonstrating whether training on virtual reality (VR) simulators directly relates to improved performance in-vivo for orthopaedic surgical procedures. This research provides a summary of transfer validity on virtual reality orthopaedic simulators. This covers studies which have shown validation of simulators and have shown the transfer of simulator-acquired skill to the operating room. The findings of this study are that there are 6 studies showing transfer of skill for VR to in-vivo However more studies assessing efficacy and transfer validity are required to conclusively quantify the transfer validity of VR orthopaedic simulators. However there is a popular positive opinion for the ability of VR training to convert into better in-vivo performance. © 2015 IEEE.
