Analysis of surgeons' and novices' movements in laparoscopic surgery and especially in their training has become a novel field of application for motion capture technology. This paper defines emerging problems, relates to theoretical foundations necessary to solve them, and presents elementary approaches. For a final implementation and realization of the described training system extension, there are eventually lots of options to choose from. For these options this work aims to provide a rich spectrum, especially when it comes to the feature extraction. A specific solution approach is explained and practically tested to some extent in order to demonstrate and partially validate the methodology.
