The medical community is constantly looking for technological solutions to reduce use-error and improve procedures to benefit the healthcare system worldwide. One area that has seen frequent improvement in the past few decades due to improved computing capabilities, lower cost and better displays has been augmented reality (AR) (Sauer, Khamene, Bascle, Vogt, & Rubino, 2002). In an operating room, surgeons and anesthesiologists are required to attend to a patient while receiving information from many different displays and instruments. This paper analyzes the human factors components of various AR devices and information display techniques to provide design guidelines for display configurations of wearable, medical AR devices that will improve upon current methods of information presentation in the operating room.
