Virtual Reality Stroke Rehabilitation

  • Project Lead(s): Philippe Archambault

    After a stroke, people often have difficulties moving and using their arm, which result in long-term disabilities. We will be testing an affordable virtual reality rehabilitation system. It provides a video game-like environment, allowing stroke patients to practice a variety of specific arm movements. Testing will take place at McGill University and in Malaysia. We hope to show that this rehabilitation system can be effective at improving arm function, independence and well-being in stroke patients.
