Abstract

Through the demographic change in Western European countries the demand for nurses in elderly care rises. Additionally, constant high physical stresses causing nurses to leave the profession before the retirement age and having a high number of sick leave days. To reduce the physical strain, focus must be set to ergonomically correct work in nursing schools. Currently given technical infrastructure in the schools lacks the capability to provide nursing instructors with analyzable data from simulated care acts. In this work, we present and evaluate the Multi-Kinect-System, our custom developed depth sensor system for recording and analyzing care acts. In a study, 13 students of a nursing school performed a simulated transfer tasks under observation of a nursing instructor and our system. The instructor gives a more in-depth evaluation of the transfer when using the intuitively analyzable data of our system, regarding the feedback length and information content.
