Palpation-Tactile Fremitus

Tactile Fremitus is a vibration felt on the patient's chest during the low-frequency vocalization while making the patient repeat the number “99”, while placing the hands at each location. The system will display a patient’s chest region marked with three buttons, ‘Upper’,’Middle’ and ’Lower’ with option to switch ‘a posterior view and anterior view'. Through the simulated virtual activity user can check the quality of the tactile fremitus by listening to the audio and text responses as you click on each marked area.
