VR as Viable Rehabilitation Too

VR as Viable Rehabilitation Too

Livestream held 29th June 2021.

Co-hosted by Immerse Australia and Curtin HIVE, this event featured university researchers who are exploring virtual reality as a viable rehabilitation tool for people with incomplete spinal cord injury.

Interactive virtual reality activities provide a safe environment for daily practice of desired rehabilitation movements. Gamification and setting a ‘just right’ challenge create motivation in this adjunct to traditional rehabilitation therapies. Associate Professor Marina Ciccarelli and Dr Susan Morris discussed the impact of virtual reality on rehabilitation. Q&A followed the presentation and included Rodney Parsons who was involved in technical development.
