Human accuracy in fine motor tasks such as during micromanipulation and microsurgery is limited. Involuntary movements that contribute to the inaccuracy include physiologic tremor, low frequency drift and jerk. These movements are inherent in normal people and to gain better knowledge and overcome them, it is important to identify various factors that may influence them. However, there are very few available instruments capable in fully capturing the inaccuracy which goes down to micrometer scale.
