Needle Insertion Plugin

Keyword: Simulation

Functional Description: This plugin contains needle/tissue interaction models for real-time simulations of needle insertion in deformable objects using the open-source sofa frame-work. This allows for modeling the different forces playing a role during the insertion process (penetration forces, friction along the shaft...) using a constrained-based formulation. This formulation provides a fast and stable solution for the simulation of complex insertions (and reinsertion) of the needle in deformations Finite Element models
