Languages of publication
The use and application of virtual reality techniques has become a standard in both everyday life (entertainment and utility), in training and research. Increasing use of virtual reality, on the one hand, allows specific skills to be practiced, especially in areas with high risk of health impairment or even loss of life (eg. vehicle, machine, or surgeon training), in areas with a difficult access (eg. astronautics) or very expensive ones. On the other hand, observations and research reports indicate the presence of threats in selected spheres of trainees’ life such as interpersonal, cognitive or somatic ones. The aim of the article is to: 1) make and synthesize data showing negative consequences of using virtual techniques for the health of trainees based on the literature, and 2) present the research proposals on the effects of real and virtual world interaction in the human-human-machine sequences on psychophysical and psychosocial functioning using three groups of tools (SSQ - Simulator Sickness Questionnaire, psychological testing battery and eye-tracking).
