Insertion of a trocar is the first step in the endoscopic surgery Although it is very important and difficult procedure, the good method for training it doesn't exist. In this study, we develop a force feedback device and develop a virtual trocar insertion training system. This system can present the reaction force of the trocar insertion and show the image linked with the operation.
