Medical training and simulation

Improve training and simulation in medical settings

Eye tracking is an effective visual assessment tool that can augment current training and evaluation methods in simulated healthcare environments. For example, it can provide information about where a surgeon is specifically looking during surgery. Also, standard simulation practices rely on debriefings that without eye tracking are only captured by learner recall and video recordings. Eye tracking is a tool that can easily integrate into simulation teaching practices and supplement standard process with visual attention data.

Benefits of eye tracking

Use eye tracking to gain quantitative and objective data to help better understand how individuals or teams performed in a simulated or naturalistic task. It is also useful for self-assessment and evaluation of comprehension. Insights may include:

  • Realtime view of live situation

  • Enhance remote video instruction

  • Visualize expert skills and techniques

  • Assess comprehension and competency

  • Excellent review process tool

The ability to actually see through the surgeon’s eyes is important, and visualizing where their hand motions are is critical to success.
