Imageless navigation systems (INS) in orthopaedics have been used to improve the outcomes of several orthopaedic procedures such as total hip replacement [1, 2]. However, the increased surgical times and the associate learning curve discourage surgeons from using navigation systems in their theatres [2]. This paper presents a Mixed Reality (MR) simulator that helps surgeons acquire the infrared based navigation skills before performing it in reality. A group of 7 hip surgeons tried the application, expressing their satisfaction with all the features and confirmed that the simulator represents a cheaper and faster option to train surgeons in the use of INS than the current learning methods.
