Abstract

Recently, touchscreen technology has increased dramatically in the medical field. This study evaluates the suitability of human-computer interaction through two tasks in terms of gender differences using a Microsoft Office touchscreen laptop. Fitts’s law pointing was employed to study the effect of 1-dimension and 2-dimensions in terms of gender differences on the three task parameters. Although there was no significant difference in the index of difficulty, the statistically significant differences between the movement time and throughput were particularly evident in the 1D task. Using a two-dimensional touchscreen reduces the gender gap. Training of females on one-dimensional touch screens is recommended.
