HFES Extended Reality Technical Group and Healthcare Technical Group Webinar: Human Factors Considerations for Medical XR Applications
In this presentation, Dr. Dias will discuss how human factors methods can and should be incorporated into the design, development, and validation stages of medical extended reality (XR) applications. He will illustrate these concepts by showing his research funded by NASA/TRISH and DoD-Health Agency to develop XR-based medical training and clinical support systems for emergency care in austere environments.
