Abstract: To date, usability problems for laparoscopic instruments have mainly been investigated using questionnaires or laboratory studies. However, this methodology prevents the duration and frequency of instrument use from being documented objectively. Therefore, a tablet was used to create a graphic user interface which enables instrument use by operating and assisting surgeons to be documented with a high level of temporal precision. In a preliminary study, instrument use was documented for five laparoscopic operations (0:44h-6:01h). 2021 actions and 221 changes of instruments were documented. The longest uninterrupted usage period without changing hands was determined for grasping forceps at 97 min.
