    Abstract

    In recent years, thanks to the introduction of Robotic Technology (RT) in the medical field, advanced surgical tools have been developed to support surgeons in order to enhance their skills to assure the consistency and reliability while performing surgical tasks. More recently, several researchers have been developing medical training systems designed to transfer motor skills to unskilled subjects. As a result of this research field, robotic-assisted training devices (referred as Active Training) are capable of providing objective assessment and multimodal feedback while the conventional training devices (referred as Passive Training) are limited in providing subjective assessment and unimodal feedback.
