Abstract : The biomechanical model presented in this paper offers precise dynamic simulation of the fetal head molding in a reasonable computational time making it suitable for use with haptic training simulators. Nevertheless, it can be improved by considering anisotropic material for the cranial bones. In future work, we plan to use our model with more complex scenarios involving the fetal head such as forceps and vacuum delivery.
