3D VIRTUAL SYSTEM BASED ON THE LEAP MOTION DEVICE, AS A SUPPORT FOR FINE MOTOR REHABILITATION THERAPY IN CHILDREN, PRELIMINARY USABILITY TESTS

. A 3D virtual system is presented using the leap motion device and Unity 3D software. The system is based on three playful tasks that allow children to recov-er their fine motor skills in an entertaining way. This system is designed to per-form movements like flexion-extension of fingers, supination-pronation, ulnar and radial deviation. The games stimulates visual motor coordination and concen-tration, which are important factors in the recovery of fine motor skills. The sys-tem was used by ten children aged between 6 and 10 years and they have the support of a rehabilitation specialist. After they have completed all the tasks, the SEQ usability test was applied with results (60.8 ± 0.26). The system allows de-termining that the system has a good acceptance to be used in rehabilitation.
