Ergo­no­mics in the OR

Sterile work in the opera­ting room is a critical factor for the success of surgical proce­dures. This rese­arch project analyzes sterile work processes in the OR from an ergo­nomic point of view.

The project aims to iden­tify starting points for impro­ving the usabi­lity of surgical products and thereby incre­asing patient safety. In addi­tion, new insights for a system ergo­nomic design of the OR nursing service are to be gained and new methods of parti­ci­pa­tory ergo­no­mics in the design and incor­po­ra­tion of implicit proce­dural know­ledge content of the users are to be deve­loped.
