The use of Virtual Cues in patients with Acquired Brain Injury. A meaningful evidence.
Virtual cues are a complement to improve quality of life in Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) patients. In the last few years, a high incidence and high costs in this pathology has produced new technological methodologies to alleviate motor and cognitive disorders. The use of low-cost and portable systems together with Virtual Environments, allow to create novel solutions that serve as a complement in traditional rehabilitation session. Medio-lateral weight transferences are a characteristic movement in the therapeutic sessions in these patients. For this reason, we are created a novel Virtual Rehabilitation system composed of virtual cues, that accomplish specifications of a multidisciplinary team. The Neuro Virtual (Neurovirt) system is a satisfactory and useful tool able to get improvements in kinematic parameters such as Reaction and Completion time in ABI patients. In this study, we have tested NeuroVirt system to get outcomes in kinematic parameters thanks to the use of Virtual Cues, and with a reliable questionnaire focused on Virtual Rehabilitation. For this purpose, we have analyzed our novel system with different populations, university students and older people. Outcomes revealed that Neurovirt system is an acceptable tool to be validated in a near future with ABI patients.
