One handed surgical knot tying is one of the core skills of surgeons. The development of this skill takes time and one-on-one expert supervision. Our motivation is to provide good quality automatic evaluation in order to reduce the need for expert supervision and provide continuous evaluation that can support a deliberate practice training paradigm. Our work demonstrates the recognition of knot tying gestures a combination of 3D vision tracking and finger motion analysis from a pair of Manus VR gloves. We demonstrate segmentation and classification of the knot tying into its component knot types and estimate student skill level based on motion analysis.
