Stroke rehabilitation presents a number of challenges for both the patient and the therapist. The use of serious games is not a new approach but there are still gaps in being able to teach a patent correct movement patterns. Join us to hear how this team from the Federal University of Uberlandia in Brazil developed a new approach to serious game design for stroke rehabilitation for better analysis of movements and measurement against protocols. This approach has implications for other areas of medical rehabilitation as well as human performance analysis.
