Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate whether people change their isometric pinch grip generation depending on the surface they gripped. Specifically, the effect of grip surface friction condition on (a) maximum force produced in the direction normal to the contact surface, (b)...
Objective: This study utilized usability testing and human factors engineering (HFE) principles to create efficient code cart medication drawer modifications to improve code blue medical emergency (code) medication management. Background: Effective access to medications during a code is a key...
Objective: The goal of this article is to investigate how instructions can be constructed to enhance performance and learning of procedural tasks. Background: Important determinants of the effectiveness of instructions are type of instructions (procedural information, principles, and examples)...
Objective: The primary goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that wearing the 3.7 kg vest portion of a radiological shielding garment (a “lead”) significantly increases lower back and shoulder muscle activity in quasistatic erect and forward-flexed postures. Secondarily, the authors...
Objective: This study examined how individuals, younger and older, interacted with an imperfect automated system. The impact of workload on performance and automation use was also investigated. Background: Automation is used in situations characterized by varying levels of workload. As automated...
Objective: It was investigated how speed limit repetition and distraction affect drivers’ speed management throughout a road section where the imposed speed limit is not in accordance (too low) with road design. Background: It is not clear how driving speed evolves and to what degree speed...
Objective: A novel vibrotactile display type was investigated to determine the potential benefits for supporting the attention and task management of anesthesiologists. Background: Recent research has shown physiological monitoring and multitasking performance can benefit from displaying patient...
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate two models for adjusting autonomy in mobile robots to find out the best way for the operator to interact with the system with as many robots as possible. The first model is the most used in mobile robots; the second proposes a flexible autonomy...
Objective: The aim of the study was to clarify how knowledge elaborated by specific experience may lead to erroneous expectations during interactions between drivers and riders. Background: Situation awareness is partly determined by prior knowledge. Unshared knowledge may cause difficulties in...
Objective: Using the landmark–route–survey frame-work, this research investigated the effect of synthetic vision systems (SVS) in either low or high visibility conditions on performance in wayfinding and spatial-knowledge-based tasks that probed spatial awareness. Background: SVS are cockpit...
