GAMES USED IN REHAB

Positively influence the level of patient's motivation

VR is a chance to positively influence the level of the patient's motivation and diversify the rehabilitation process.

While playing VR, the patient is having fun and making effort at the same time - they are driven by internal motivation. This is a getaway from traditional rehab activities that often accompany them throughout the whole life.

4. Tracking of Deficient or Spastic Hands

When applicable: can’t hold the controllers – spastic hands, hand impairment, cerebral palsy, tetraplegia

How does it work: Players don’t need to hold controllers anymore. Kinect detects hands with limited functionality or spasticity, so they can do the work of controllers.

What happens when a person exercises in Virtual Reality?

Any person, when exercising with virtual reality enhancement, is actually having real physical training, completing his physiotherapy done in the gym. It is an additional rehabilitation form. Among the participants, an interesting phenomenon is observed – a person focused on the tasks and quests of the virtual world game, is much bolder with physical movements both during the VR session, and later during functional therapy in the gym.

Strong commitment, internally motivated moves.

The patient is focused on achieving the result, not on the number of repetitions.

Increased self-confidence in the face of proposed quests.

Unconsciously initiated movements are most often accomplished with a greater range than under the therapist‘s instructions.

The level and nature of enhancements are fully adjustable to the patient’s capabilities and intended therapeutic results.

Lots of fun that boost their self-esteem and makes every activity possible in virtual reality.
