With Leap Motion Controller, virtual reality exercises have been implemented more often since 2014, and this technology has benefited more from upper extremity rehabilitation In literature, there are no publications investigating the effectiveness of virtual reality applications on upper extremity functions in cases of mental retardation with Leap Motion.
We think that virtual reality applications with Leap Motion are effective in fine motor skills and grip strength in cases of mental retardation.
The purpose of our work; To Investigation of the Effectiveness of Video Based Games on Upper Extremity Functions in Mild Mental Retardation Diagnosed Cases
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Mental Retardation Upper Extremity||Other: Leap-Motion virtual reality games Other: fine motor skills activities||Not Applicable|
For the study group, in addition to fine motor skills activities, 20 min. Leap-Motion virtual reality games, and for the control group only fine motor skill activities will be applied. The study will last 8 weeks, 2 times a week for a total of 16 sessions.The games that Fizyosoft has built on Leap Motion equipment will be played individually and will focus on running hand, wrist and grip movements to improve hand and grip activities of the events. Each game is designed to develop a different hand movement. In this study, CatchaPet and LeapBall of Fizyosoft HandRom products will be used.
"LeapBall," aiming at throwing the ball in the same color as the ball, and Leap Motion sensor games, "CatchaPet," aimed at touching the rabbits out of the holes with repeated wrist flexion / extensional movements, will be preferred by grasping a virtual ball with the fingers of all fingers.
The demographic characteristics of all the cases participating in the study will be recorded.
JEBSON hand function test, Manual Ability Classification System (MACS), 9 Hole Peg Test to measure fine hand skill. JAMAR Hand Dynamometer to measure Hand Grip Force, Pinchmeter to measure finger grip strength. The evaluation will be repeated before and after the treatment.

Experimental: study group
fine motor skills activities and Leap-Motion virtual reality games
Other: Leap-Motion virtual reality games
Games that Fizyosoft has prepared on Leap Motion equipment to improve hand and grip activities will be played individually and will focus on running hand, wrist and grip movements
Experimental: control group
fine motor skills activities
Other: fine motor skills activities
activities that stimulate finger movements such as holding, reaching, catching, writing, and strengthening muscles
- Jebsen Hand Function Test [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline and to the 2 months ]The Jebsen Hand Function Test assesses fine motor skills, weighted and non-weighted hand function activities during performance of activities of daily living
