Reforms of laparoscopic surgery training-called for reduction of patient's risks from surgeons in training. In arthroscopy (joint surgery), like all keyhole surgery, training is a mixture of formal courses and practice on patients. Simple arthroscopy simulation models used in courses only cater adequately for an early learning curve. This leaves a gap in patient risk. VR applications are increasing in power to prod;ce complex training devices such as the Sheffield Knee Arthroscopy Training System (SKATS), an advanced knee surgery trainer. Requirements capture for safety critical VR training is more complex than conventional design. This paper discusses SKATS psychological requirements capture process. This exceeds accepted human factors in design and embraces the idea of risk-based innovation. We argue that design aim to reduce risk must utilise operationally defined risk concepts as design inputs. The system is substantially weakened if, due to the primacy of technological and HCI considerations, these are consigned to post design validation.
