Virtual Reality for Neurorehabilitation

Our research activities aim to explore the rehabilitation experience using virtual reality systems (i.e. immersive virtual reality) and provide innovative solutions to patients. VR offers a highly immersive and engaging environment that can provide patients with a more motivating and enjoyable experience. Our research focuses on developing customized VR-based rehabilitation programs that target specific motor and cognitive functions. We also investigate ways to integrate VR with advanced myoelectric control strategies and other emerging technologies, to provide patients with a more personalized and effective rehabilitation experience. The virtual reality environment is based on activities of daily living, standard assessment and serious gaming. In addition, the control of a virtual prosthetic limb using sEMG sensors may lead to a strong sense of embodiment and ownership.
