Augmented Reality for Stroke Recovery
Recovering from a stroke can take months or years, and it’s often hard for patients to keep up with rehabilitation exercises, especially after short-term coverage from insurance ends. This app turns exercises into an augmented reality game: The patient plays the part of a farmer planting trees or feeding chickens, making each movement more interesting. It combines the soothing and playful environment of farming and uses augmented reality combined with ambient sound to create an immersive experience. The game actions help convert the benefits of physical therapy into engaging interactions. At the end of the day, a chart shows how the patient is progressing toward muscle recovery to help them keep motivation up.
