Tom Stoffregen, PhD, professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Affordance Perception-Action Laboratory (APAL), along with co-authors in the APAL, Danny Arruda, MS, and George Bailey, MS, a doctoral candidate in the School of Kinesiology, has published an article entitled, “Using quantitative data on postural activity to develop methods to predict and prevent cybersickness” to Frontiers in Virtual Reality. The article looks at the phenomenon of “cybersickness”, where users of VR headsets experience nausea and other symptoms. Taking a look at the current body of research, the article proposes a preventative approach as opposed to focusing on mitigation. Each of the authors was supported by, and the article was written as part of, a NSF-funded collaboration with UMN’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
