Video Game Therapy for Stroke Patients
Over 795,000 people have a stroke every year in the US. Task specificity, patient motivation, and repetition of movement are three key components to rehab after a stroke, especially for the upper extremity. This study looks at how video gaming technology can supplement physical/occupational therapy sessions. Patients have seen increased function, sensation and balance in their upper extremities and improved quality of life.
