HFES 2021 Human Factors Prize goes to Purdue

"An Adaptive Human-Robotic Interaction Architecture for Augmenting Surgery Performance Using Real-time Workload Measurement" has been selected as the winner of the HFES 2021 Human Factors Prize.
No upcoming events.

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:

  1. Sensing-based modeling of physical and cognitive workload
  2. Design and assessment of interventions to reduce workload and improve human performance
  3. Developing objective and automated assessment metrics for simulation-based clinical training
  4. Big data approaches for modeling human behaviors in healthcare delivery

Interested? Please contact me - I look forward to talking with you.
