Work-In-Progress - Exploring the Feasibility of Using Hand Tracking in VR Application for Memory Training Exercises

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review

Abstract

There are several non-pharmaceutical treatment approaches, from simple to more complex, for the care of dementia patients, such as the use of immersive technology with virtual reality (VR). However, there are some difficulties in using wired and controller-based VR devices for dementia patients. This work-in-progress paper describes our steps to implement a wireless VR experience with a hand-tracking interaction system. Before testing the environment with patients, we first evaluate the usability of the VR experience by conducting a user study with ten participants. The results indicate above-average usability and low task load. Future developments in this area may improve the application of VR in memory training.
