Welcome to the Healthcare Ergonomics Analytics Lab (HEAL)!
Our current research links the areas of musculoskeletal injuries, intervention design and assessment, and sensing-based exposure measurements with applications in improving the safety in healthcare environments for both patients and medical professionals. On-going research thrusts include:
- Sensing-based modeling of physical and cognitive workload
- Design and assessment of interventions to reduce workload and improve human performance
- Developing objective and automated assessment metrics for simulation-based clinical training
- Big data approaches for modeling human behaviors in healthcare delivery
Interested? Please contact me - I look forward to talking with you.
