Intro to the human body: Wearability and human factors of wearable systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The traditional “human” model in human-computer interaction prioritizes the human brain, with physical and sensory interaction as secondary emphases. As wearable technologies proliferate and mature, the user experience and human factors of the rest of the body become increasingly important. This course will provide an overview of the basic foundations of wearability and human factors of wearable systems, from anatomy and physiology to body schema, physiological experience of on-body artifacts, and the ways in which dress affects and communicates identity and social relationships.
