- Background/Aims: Several attempts have been made to incorporate smart glasses in the medical field. We applied wearable displayglasses to show the position of an observer during endoscopy and compared students’ responses between the conventional and newmethods.
Methods: We surveyed 28 medical students regarding the use of wearable display devices. The students used wearable display glassesto observe an endoscopic procedure and answered the prepared questionnaire. Their collected responses were analyzed for statisticalcorrelations between each variable.
Results: The survey of medical students revealed disadvantages including dizziness (dissatisfied and very dissatisfied: 21.5%) andeye fatigue (25% dissatisfied) and advantages including concentration (satisfied and very satisfied: 57.2%) and securing patient rights(71.4%). The students showed more positive than negative reviews regarding the new devices (32.1% vs. 21.5%).
Conclusions: We investigated the advantages and disadvantages of viewing the endoscope image with new wearable display glassescompared to the conventional method using the survey to record user experience. The results revealed relatively positive responsesfrom the medical students in the survey. If the new device compensates for some shortcomings, its use in the endoscopy room will befeasible.
