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:
- Data-driven modeling of human performance with sensing
- Physical ergonomics in healthcare
- Medical device design and usability testing
- Wearables for enhancing worker training and performance in high stress dynamic environments
Interested? Please contact me - I look forward to talking with you.
