  • Surface EMG in Ergonomics and Occupational Medicine

    Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders is one of the main goals in ergonomics. The development of methods to quantify muscle force, fatigue, and muscle involvement in a work task is important for this purpose surface electromyography (sEMG) and kinematic measurements are the main tools for the quantitative evaluation of risks related to work activity. The literature regarding the potential of sEMG techniques in ergonomic studies is extensive and concerns many applications, some of which are listed: work at display terminals and office workstations, production line workstations, work with surgical workstations and workspace optimization. Surface EMG has a remarkable potential role in the prevention, monitoring, documentation, and possibly treatment of work related disorders. Insufficient research funding and standardization efforts are still limiting its applications. Much greater research efforts are required to transform its potential into a practical technique with clinical and legal relevance and economic impact on work health.

  • Supporting and Exploiting Spatial Memory in User Interfaces

    Spatial memory is an important facet of human cognition - it allows users to learn the locations of items over time and retrieve them with little effort. In human-computer interfaces, a strong knowledge of the spatial location of controls can enable a user to interact fluidly and efficiently, without needing to visually search for relevant controls. Computer interfaces should therefore be designed to provide support for developing the user's spatial memory, and they should allow the user to exploit it for rapid interaction whenever possible. However, existing systems offer varying support for spatial memory. Many modern interfaces break the user's ability to remember spatial locations, by moving or re-arranging items; others leave spatial memory underutilised, requiring slow sequences of mechanical actions to select items rather than exploiting users' strong ability to index items and controls by their on-screen locations. Supporting and Exploiting Spatial Memory in User Interfaces highlights the importance of designing for spatial memory in HCI. It summarizes empirical results on spatial memory from both the psychology and HCI domains, identifying a set of observable properties of spatial memory that can be used to inform design. It also analyses existing interfaces in the HCI literature that support or disrupt spatial memory, including space-multiplexed displays for command and navigation interfaces, different techniques for dealing with large spatial data sets, and the effects of spatial distortion. Supporting and Exploiting Spatial Memory in User Interfaces provides strong evidence that spatial knowledge of controls and data enables rapid interaction and information retrieval, and allows users to focus more of their cognitive resources on the task at hand, rather than on the interface. It is aimed at user interface designers, as well as other HCI researchers interested in spatial memory. Useful guidelines for designers are identified throughout the book, which provide clear advice on how and when to design with spatial memory in mind. Similarly, the concluding summary of the area, as well as methodological cautions and directions for future research provide an excellent resource for scientists interested in the importance of spatial memory in user interfaces.

As the complexity of healthcare increases-with technological advances and information overload-the field of human factors offers practical approaches to understand the situation, mitigate risk, and improve outcomes.</p><p>The first part of this book presents a human factors conceptual framework, and the second part offers a systematic, pragmatic approach. Both the framework and the approach are employed to analyze and understand healthcare situations, both proactively-for constant improvement- and reactively-learning from adverse events.</p><p>This book guides healthcare professionals through the process of mapping the environmental and human factors; assessing them in relation to the tasks each person performs; recognizing how gaps in the fit between human capabilities and the demands of the task in the environment have a ripple effect that increases risk; and drawing conclusions about what types of changes facilitate improvement and mitigate risk, thereby contributing to improved healthcare outcomes.</p>

  • Displaying Scientific Graphics on Computer

    This chapter describes several methods for computer display of large, dense graphics that preserve the usability of the graphics and support the ways users need to interact with the figures. It summarizes some general issues in computerizing printed graphics and describes a set of figure display methods that can be used to present complex and oversized graphics successfully on a small computer screen. The chapter discusses the basic requirements that, when converting scientific and technical figures for electronic display, should be met to insure the information value of the figures is preserved. The chapter also describes several methods for reorganizing or restructuring complex figures, or oversized graphics so they can be displayed easily on a standard- sized computer monitor without compromising their readability and usability. The production process for implementing the electronic figure display methods so they can be displayed in a relatively small screen area, is also discussed.
