Usability and Utility of Head Mounted Displays in Care according to Caregivers
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
Nowadays, professional caregivers need to provide care in less and less time, while quality requirements are increasing. Therefore, access to information and guidance need to be improved. One solution to support caregivers is the Care Lenses which support caregivers during everyday care with Augmented Reality (AR). AR may provide additional information, guidance and remote support. While technology is not always the best solution for such a difficult and manifold problem, extensive evaluations are needed in order to investigate the potential of AR in everyday care context. In this Paper we summarize perceptions of 25 caregivers, who were participating in our study, using Care Lenses in a simulated everyday care situation. It shows AR is able to support caregiver during their work and what kind of problems might occur during the introduction into professional care.
