Marientina Gotsis, Vangelis Lympouridis and David Turpin gave a sneak peek of our rapid prototyping platform for upper body exercise games for individuals with spinal cord injury at IEEE Virtual Reality 2012 in Costa Mesa this week. The project was accepted as a research demo presentation entitled Mixed Reality Game Prototypes for Upper Body Exercise and Rehabilitation”. Participants were able to test several new concepts developed for spinal alignment, resistance training, stretching and free play. The project is funded by NIDRR through USC’s OPTT-RERC center.
The research demo details will be published soon in IEEE proceedings. Meantime, the demo is described visually below in a poster we made for demo participants:
