The Geomagic® Touch™ Haptic Device

The Geomagic Touch (formerly Sensable Phantom Omni) is a mid-range professional haptic device (slotting in between the less expensive 3D Systems Touch and the more premium Geomagic Touch X). Used in research, 3D modeling, OEM applications and more, Geomagic 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.

Geomagic 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. 

Geomagic 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, Geomagic 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®.

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.

 

 

 

Medical

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.

 

 

 

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.
