Between-subjects RCT involving 20 student and trainee participants who completed leg fasciotomies with either real-time guidance using the System for Telementoring with Augmented Reality (STAR) or just a procedure manual. Authors concluded that participants who used STAR real-time guidance performed leg faciotomies with fewer errors, better performance scores, and higher reported confidence.
