We present the first VR training simulator for hip replacement surgeries. We solved the main challenges of this task – high and stable forces during the milling process while simultaneously a very sensitive feedback is required – by using an industrial robot for the force output and the development of a novel massively parallel haptic rendering algorithm with support for material removal.
