Objective

Together with Hammel Neurocenter, Kanda made the project called VRiAT – Virtual Rehabilitation intensive Arm Training. The aim of the project was to make rehabilitation more fun, engaging and effective.

Solution

The objective was accomplished by creating two virtual reality mini-games, which would allow the patients to train in a more fun environment. Gamification helps making routine exercises more fun and can also help distract the patient from pain.

Tech

In this project, Kanda combined Microsoft Kinect with the Oculus Rift to fit the patients' needs.

 

Everybody want to try it – both old and young people. At first, people are a bit hesitant and don’t really know what it is. But we have only received positive feedback and people think it is funny
