Interactive Motor Imagery in Virtual Reality
Not Provided
This project will build and test the first rehabilitation system employing virtual reality (VR)-based observation, motor imagery and execution to treat lower-limb neuropathic pain and motor dysfunction in participants with an incomplete spinal cord injury or another neurological disorder, eg. stroke: iCTuS-L (Interactive Computer-based Therapy System for legs). Patients using the system will control virtual representations of their legs to engage in entertaining gaming interactions.
