Prof Hamish MacDougall: Virtual and Augmented Realities in the Health Sector

Sydney Concepts @ Westmead



Westmead Education & Conference Centre (WECC).

The ongoing Friday morning series - formerly known as Clinical applications of technological innovation - is now known as Sydney Concepts @ Westmead, where the conversations between expert researchers across the depth and breadth of the University of Sydney and colleagues from the Westmead precinct will continue.

The first of this newly titled series is on Virtual and Augmented Realities in the Health Sector, and will take place at 11.30am on September 15 in the Westmead Education & Conference Centre (WECC).

On September 15 please join Professor Hamish MacDougall for a session on Augmented Realities in the Health Sector.

Can you overcome your primal senses? Can you walk along a plank 20 stories up in the sky?
Hamish MacDougall from the Human Factors laboratory in psychology will give a brief overview of the way virtual and augmented realities can be used in the health sector in an ever increasing number of scenarios – from balance to surgery training.

Join him for some very immersive hands-on demonstrations of the VR in the physical space - including walking the plank!

Dr Hamish MacDougall is from the Human Factors Research Lab in the School of Psychology, where his research interests include eye-movement responses, human vestibular compensation, and human factors.
