Abstract

The Hyper Hospital is constructed in the computer based electronic network using the virtual reality system as the human-machine-human interface. Most of the physical contact, such as the visit to the out patient office by the patient, is actualized by the electronic connection of the patient private space and the public space of the hospital system. To realize such a system, we studied the physiological and psychological responses of healthy subjects induced by the usage of the VR in terms of fatigue. Twenty healthy young male subjects were exposed to the virtual reality system and they performed some psychological tasks with a virtual nurse for 30 minutes. None of the physiological or psychological parameters showed significant fatigue induced by our VR system.
