Anecdotal reports suggest that motion sickness may occur among users of contemporary, consumer-oriented head-mounted display systems and that women may be at greater risk. We evaluated the nauseogenic properties of one such system, the Oculus Rift. The head-mounted unit included motion sensors that were sensitive to users’ head movements, such that head movements could be used as control inputs to the device. In two experiments, seated participants played one of two virtual reality games for up… Expand
Cybersickness in Virtual Reality Head-Mounted Displays: Examining the Influence of Sex Differences and Vehicle Control
TLDR
The results confirm that motion sickness is a common effect of HMD use, and suggest that in virtual environments sex differences in motion sickness may vary with specific tasks, as well as confirming that the incidence of motion sickness, or the severity ofmotion sickness symptoms differed between the sexes, or between drivers and passengers. Expand
Cybersickness in Head-Mounted Displays Is Caused by Differences in the User's Virtual and Physical Head Pose
TLDR
This paper proposes that cybersickness in HMD VR is triggered by large magnitude, time-varying patterns of DVP, and shows how this hypothesis can be tested by systematically manipulating display lag magnitudes and head movement speeds across HMDVR conditions. Expand
Postural Activity During Use of a Head-Mounted Display: Sex Differences in the “Driver–Passenger” Effect
TLDR
Movement kinematics are consistent with a prediction of the postural instability theory of motion sickness etiology and shed new light on the multifactorial origins of postural precursors of motion Sickness in virtual environments. Expand
Effects of steering locomotion and teleporting on cybersickness and presence in HMD-based virtual reality
TLDR
Comparing the presence, cybersickness and perceptions of self-motion induced when using two common methods of virtual locomotion: steering locomotion and teleporting found some evidence of the benefits of steering railway for presence. Expand
Predictors of visually induced motion sickness in women
TLDR
The findings suggest a shared link between VIMS and menstrual pain, and further research should investigate pain sensitivity as a general predictor for VIMs. Expand
Variability in Sensory Sensitivity Predicts Motion Sickness in Virtual Reality
The goal of virtual reality (VR) is to provide an immersive experience. However, VR displays often give rise to discomfort, including motion sickness. The cause of motion sickness, and especially theExpand
Virtual reality head-mounted goggles increase the body sway of young adults during standing posture
TLDR
Wearing virtual reality head-mounted goggles increased body sway of young adults during standing postural task, when the individuals were with eyes-opened, however, the effects of wearing VR head- mounted goggles on body sway disappeared when the Individuals were with Eyes-closed or the google scene was turned off the scene. Expand
Postural stability predicts the likelihood of cybersickness in active HMD-based virtual reality
TLDR
Individual differences in spontaneous postural instability when standing quietly were found to predict the likelihood of subsequently experiencing cybersickness, supporting recent proposals that postural measures can help diagnose who will benefit the most/least from HMD-based virtual reality. Expand
Survey on Causes of Motion Sickness in Virtual Reality
TLDR
This paper investigates and highlights the factors that can cause motion sickness in the VR environment, and performs survey questionnaire from different VR users to determine the effect of each factor (such as nausea, fatigue) on different users. Expand
Multisensory integration and the experience of scene instability, presence and cybersickness in virtual environments
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the view that measurable low-level visual-vestibular conflicts can account for the cybersickness experienced during HMD VR. Expand

Motion Sickness, Console Video Games, and Head-Mounted Displays
TLDR
The results indicate that commercial console video game systems can induce motion sickness when presented via a head-mounted display and support the hypothesis that motion sickness is preceded by instability in the control of seated posture. Expand
Motion control, motion sickness, and the postural dynamics of mobile devices
TLDR
The incidence of motion sickness was greater in the Touch condition than in the Tilt condition, and movement of the head and torso differed as a function of the type of game control. Expand
Control of a virtual vehicle influences postural activity and motion sickness.
TLDR
It is confirmed that control is an important factor in the etiology of motion sickness and this finding is extended to the control of noninertial virtual vehicles. Expand
Motion Sickness and Postural Sway in Console Video Games
TLDR
The results indicate that console video games carry a significant risk of motion sickness, and head and torso motion differed between sick and well participants prior to the onset of subjective symptoms of motion sick. Expand
Control of a Virtual Avatar Influences Postural Activity and Motion Sickness
The influence of vehicular control on motion sickness has implications for theories of motion sickness etiology. We asked whether motion sickness susceptibility might also be related to the controlExpand
Visual 3D motion acuity predicts discomfort in 3D stereoscopic environments
TLDR
Individual differences, specifically in sensitivity to dynamic visual cues to depth, were correlated with experienced levels of discomfort and suggest a number of potential methods to reduce VR-related motion sickness in the future. Expand
Postural sway in men and women during nauseogenic motion of the illuminated environment
TLDR
Sex differences in motion sickness may be related to Sex differences in the control and stabilization of bodily activity, and the spatial magnitude and multifractality of sway was consistent with the postural instability theory of motion sickness. Expand
Motion sickness susceptibility

TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review some of the more important factors governing motion sickness susceptibility, with an emphasis on the personal rather than physical stimulus factors. Expand
Effects of Image Scale and System Time Delay on Simulator Sickness within Head-Coupled Virtual Environments
TLDR
A comparison across experiments suggests no appreciable increase in simulator sickness with increasing time delays above the nominal value, and head angular position data exhibited certain systematic variations across conditions. Expand
Sex Differences in the Incidence of Motion Sickness Induced by Linear Visual Oscillation.
TLDR
Sex differences in motion sickness may vary as a function of the type of motion stimulation (linear versus angular) as well as those that have been reported in field studies. Expand
