Aileen investigated at the Gerontechnology and Rehabilitation Lab how sensory overload of patients during stays at the Intensive Care Unit could be mitigated by immersive virtual reality interventions under the title “The Development, Application, and Evaluation of Virtual Reality Technology to Decrease Sensory Overload in the Intensive Care Unit”.
