Geomagic Touch Haptic Device

The Geomagic Touch (formerly Sensable Phantom Omni) is the industry’s most widely deployed professional haptic device. Used in reseARCh, 3D modeling, OEM applications and more, Touch allows users to freely sculpt 3D clay, enhance scientific or medical simulations, increase productivity with interactive training, and easily maneuver mechanical components to produce higher quality designs.

Touch is a motorized device that applies force feedback on the user’s hand, allowing them to feel virtual objects and producing true-to-life touch sensations as user manipulates on-screen 3D objects. Leading companies integrate the Geomagic Touch and haptics into their work to achieve compelling solutions using the realistic sense of touch.

Touch can be used in diverse applications, including: simulation, training, skills assessment, rehearsal, virtual assembly, robotic control, collision detection, machine interface design, rehabilitation, mapping and dozens of other applications.

When used with our OpenHaptics toolkit, Touch allows developers to rapidly design and deploy haptic programs, do mash-ups into existing applications, try out new ideas, and create haptically enabled products. Touch is also sold as a component of Geomagic FreeForm and Geomagic Claytools modeling systems.

ReseARCh and Development

Top universities and research centers worldwide are leading the way in developing haptically enabled applications, and they consistently choose Geomagic Touch for their work. Touch allows researchers to create a consistent user experience in applications for rehabilitation, multimedia, military, biomedical reseARCh and more.

Haptic devices play a vital part of many medical training and reseARCh applications. Using Geomagic Touch, surgEONs can plan and rehearse by operating on a virtual patient model with life-like tissue reaction and accurate surgical tools. And curriculum-based medical training using the Touch provides important experience for students in a pre-clinical setting.

The Cerebral Surgery Rehearsal Platform (SRP) is named in honor of Dr. Warren Selman, M.D., (shown) Chair of the Neurosurgery department at Case University Hospitals of Cleveland.

Training and Education

ScanTrainer, from UK-based MedaPhor, is a virtual-reality ultrasound training simulator that bridges the gap between textbook and patient by providing curriculum-based training in a pre-clinical setting. The latest generation animation and realistic haptic simulation techniques are combined with actual ultrasound scans to provide an extremely realistic scanning environment for highly effective training.

    * The Geomagic Touch device is IEEE 1394A compliant. However, Geomagic is aware of customers that have experienced performance difficulties with their Touch devices when using controller cards with certain IEEE 1394A chipset, such as NEC, or driver combinations. In these cases, it may be necessary to update or change the 1394 controller card driver or to try a separate add-on 1394 controller card.
