    As part of the thesis we have developed applications for the extension of the vein display with support for two additional navigation devices (3D Connexion Space Navigator Mouse and hand gesture based navigation device Leap Motion) which represented an extension of possible input devices besides the keyboard and a mouse to manipulate the view of 3D model of neck veins. In addition to the implementation of support for the device in the application we carried out a user study in which we assessed the usability and ease of use of devices in the application. The results consisted from data we collected from the users' experience while they solved various manipulation tasks and the answers received from questionnaires SUS (System Usability Scale) which constitute one of the tools with which we can assess interfaces. Analysis of the results confirmed that the 3D mouse is more useful in such an environment and also highlighted some shortcomings of the hands free navigation device Leap Motion.
