When designing large‐scale products, like airplanes, involving the opinions from end‐users, like passengers, in conceptualization is difficult. Including user evaluation at the early stage is of foremost importance to develop products or services that reach user satisfaction. Comfort‐related assessments are particularly difficult to implement with...

For designing large-scale products like an airplane, engaging end-users in the concept phase is difficult. However, early user evaluation is important to choose the path which fits the user’s needs best. In particular, comfort-related assessments are difficult to conduct with digital models that are shown on a desktop PC application. Digital Human...

Ensuring surgeons are well-trained in various skills is of paramount importance to patient safety. Surgical simulators were introduced to laparoscopy training during the last 2 decades for basic skills training. The main drawback of current simulation-based laparoscopy training is their lack of true representation of the intro-operative experience....

Smartphone is nowadays the most prevalent computer system, thus a lot of attention from academia and industries has been put to evaluate its quality of use. However, Smartphone has more complex interaction modes and usage scenarios than PC and laptop. And therefore assessing its quality using a conventional usability evaluation is not sufficient. M...

The study investigated the extent to which electronic voting is accessible to Dutch voters, especially the visually impaired, those with low literacy, and the elderly. Together with the different user groups, a series of electronic interfaces were developed and simulations of a vote-printer were built to run tests on large numbers of participants....

The usability now serves as a fundamental quality of a computational device, e.g. smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone has firmly embedded into our daily life as an indispensable part, so the context and style that user may interact with them are largely different from a decade ago. Nowadays, testing usability with end user has become a common sens...

... In the late 1960s, due to the advancement of science and technology, such as the establishment of new theories such as cybernetics, information theory, and system theory, it provided a new theoretical basis for human engineering and also put forward new requirements for the research of this discipline. e subject of ergonomics has entered the research stage of the system; that is, the development stage of modern ergonomics [16]. At this stage, people have carried out new research and interpretation on the three elements of human, machine, and environment in ergonomics through various aspects of human science, behavioral science, technical science, environmental science, and social science. ...
... The reduced costs and advances in virtual reality (VR) technology have opened new possibilities to overcome the restrictions in contemporary otological surgery training and anatomic education. There are now a growing number of studies highlighting that the VR simulators available on various platforms are efficient educational tools in the surgical training of novices Fang et al., 2014;Lui and Hoy, 2017;Compton et al., 2020;Li et al., 2021;Sánchez-Margallo et al., 2021). ...
... Common methods used for expert-based usability assessment are varied, such as reviewing guides based on interaction design guidelines, innovative assessments, reviewing cognitive enhancements, reviewing usage paths, formal usability inspections and innovative marches (Nielsen, 1994). In recent years, several review studies have been conducted on usability evaluation methods (Davis et al., 2020;Li et al., 2019;Rauf et al., 2019;Vargas Caceres et al., 2018;Wronikowska et al., 2021). Recently, some of these expert-based techniques have proposed new models of evaluation factors (Lee and Lee, 2019;Veral and Macias, 2019), some extended methods include new heuristics (Othman et al., 2018;Yanez-Gomez et al., 2019). ...
