Abstract

Our research focuses on the development of the VR simulator NurseSim to train nurse and hospital aides how to carry unconscious or injured person. The motivation behind this project is the fact that nurses consider patient lifting, transfer, and turning as most physically demanding. The user experiences the 3D environment in which they hold the subject. The task is to maintain such posture so that to prevent further injuries of the patient and distribute the weight of the patient over both hands evenly. Nurses are taught to mitigate and manage fatigue while at work.
