Virtual reality rehabilitation for all: Vivid GX™ versus Sony PlayStation II EyeToy®

D Rand, R Kizony and P L Weiss

Abstract: The main objective of this paper was to investigate the potential of the Sony PlayStation II EyeToy (www.EyeToy.com) for use in the rehabilitation of elderly people with disabilities. Three studies were done. The first study included the testing of healthy, young adult participants (N=18) and compared their experiences using the EyeToy system to the GX system in terms of sense of presence, sense of enjoyment, control, success and perceived exertion.

Effect of movement constraint within virtual environments

Hagit Brown-Rubin, Debbie Rand, Rachel Kizony and Patrice L. (Tamar) Weiss

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the sense of presence, perceived exertion and performance experienced by healthy users when they engaged in two virtual environments performed within two video capture virtual applications that differed in their level of structure and the possibility to perform unconstrained movements. The study instruments included the VividGroupGX and the IREX™ virtual reality applications.

Virtual Reality Provides Leisure Time Opportunities for Young Adults with Physical and Intellectual Disabilities

Patrice L. (Tamar) Weiss, Ph.D., Pnina Bialik, B.A., and Rachel Kizony, M.Sc.

Abstract: Due to limitations in their physical abilities, adults with cerebral palsy (CP) have relatively few opportunities to engage in independent leisure activities. This pervasive lack of opportunity often leads to the development of dependent behavioral patterns and learned helplessness. The objective of this pilot study was to explore ways in which virtual reality can provide positive and enjoyable leisure experiences during physical interactions with different game-like virtual environments and potentially lead to increased self-esteem and a sense of self-empowerment.

Benefits of activity and virtual reality based balance exercise programmes for adults with traumatic brain injury: Perceptions of participants and their caregivers

M. Thornton, S. Marshall, J. McComas, H. Finestone, A McCormick, & H. Sveistrup

Abstract: The objective of this study was to explore multi-dimensional benefits of exercise participation perceived by adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their caregivers. Adults (n=27, aged 18–66) with moderate or severe TBI 6 months or more earlier participated in focus groups following 6 weeks of an activity-based (ABE) or a virtual reality (VR) delivered balance exercise programme. Family members and care providers participated in separate focus groups. Perceptions related to programme participation as well as balance confidence and lower extremity function were extracted from focus group verbatim and quantitative scales, respectively.
