THE USE OF SIMULATORS FOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: TO SET THE THEME for this paper, perhaps the title of it should be: Do Simulators have a Place in Biomedical Research? I am not questioning the use of simulators in the training situation or in feasibility studies of design prototypes, but I do want to put emphasis on the research use of simulators. At the Civil Aeronautical Medical Research Institute our interest is in the factors that effect navigator and pilot performance such things as fatigue effects, drugs, environmental stress, new equipment design, and workplace layout as they would be evaluated in a simulator situation for use in a transport or in an air traffic control system.
