Designing Wearable Performance Support: Insights from the Early Literature
This article describes developments in wearable EPSS design. It first explores the feasibility of wearable EPSSs. Next, it explores human factors considerations in designing wearable EPSSs. Last, it discusses collaborative uses of these systems. The concept of wearable EPSSs is not a particularly new one; it was first proposed and tested in the mid-1990s. However, because this is a unique design strategy that is outside the norm of everyday work in technical communication and performance technology, because it offers a unique perspective on design, and because it offers early insights into some of the challenges faced by designers of EPSSs, it is appropriate to revisit the idea in the context of this special issue exploring the design of EPSSs.
