Exploring how augmented reality could help someone to carry out tasks at home

Our EngD research student, Thomas, is looking for participants to take part in a study at the University of Bath this summer. This study is part of his research project exploring how augmented reality could help people living with dementia at home.

Your participation in this study will help us understand what sort of visual instructions in augmented reality are effective at prompting someone to perform an action.

What does the study involve?

You will be asked to view a collection of objects through a screen and will be shown information about an action that you should perform. After each action, you will be asked to answer two shorts questions about that action. After all actions have been seen, a final set of questions will be used to ask you about your experience during the experiment.

The study will take up to 1 hour 30 minutes.

To take part, you must:

  • Be of 50 years of age or older
  • Have normal-to-corrected vision
  • Be able to travel to the University of Bath
  • Not have a diagnosis of a cognitive impairment, such as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or any type of dementia.

Benefits of being involved

  • Exciting and interesting opportunity to be involved with research using an up-and-coming technology
  • Participants will receive a £10 gift voucher as thanks for taking part.
