Virtual reality helping spinal-injured people move
Curtin researchers have created an interactive virtual reality simulation as a functional rehabilitation activity to help people with cervical spinal cord injuries.
The simulation involves cooking a virtual steak, with tasks like frying, flipping, seasoning and transferring the steak from pan to plate. The purpose is to improve the participant’s control and range of upper limb movements.
“Early and effective rehabilitation can significantly enhance a person’s independence post-injury. This innovative technology allows rehabilitation to occur daily in the home, minimising time, travel and therapy costs associated with attending outpatient rehabilitation,” says secretary Kane Blackman from Curtin’s partner, the Insurance Commission.
