How to report multiple outcome metrics in virtual reality simulation

Background: Virtual reality (VR) simulation is increasingly used in surgical disciplines. Since VR simulators measure multiple outcomes, standardized reporting is needed.

Methods: We present an algorithm for combining multiple VR outcomes into dimension summary measures, which are then integrated into a meaningful total score. We reanalyzed the data of two VR studies applying the algorithm.

Results: The proposed algorithm was successfully applied to both VR studies.

Conclusions: The algorithm contributes to standardized and transparent reporting in VR-related research.
