2 Abstract: Recent experimental evidence suggests that rapid advancement of virtual reality (VR) technologies has great potential for the development of novel strategies for motor rehabilitation. Virtual reality is a computer based, interactive, multi-sensory simulation environment that occurs in real time. The aim of this review was to discuss the rationale, criteria of application, limits of the available procedures and the effects of VR in the rehabilitation of patients with stroke and those… Expand
The Use of the Nintendo Wii in Motor Rehabilitation for Virtual Reality Interventions: A Literature Review
Several review articles have been published on the use of Virtual Reality (VR) in motor rehabilitation. The majority of these focus on the effectiveness of VR on improving motor function usingExpand
Vision-based serious games and virtual reality systems for motor rehabilitation: A review geared toward a research methodology
TLDR
It is found that Kinect, EyeToy system, and GestureTek IREX are the most commonly used technologies in studying the effects of vision-based serious games and virtual reality systems on rehabilitation. Expand
Efficacy of Virtual Reality in Upper Limb Rehabilitation in Patients with Spinal Cord Injury: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Virtual reality along with conventional therapy produces similar results in upper limb function as does conventional therapy alone. Expand
Improvement of Computational Rehabilitation Support Systems Based on Virtual and Augmented Reality: Clinical Similarity and Biomechanical Movement Recognition
Traditionally, the rehabilitation process is a slow and repetitive process which leads to a high evasion rate. Due the growing of interactive technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and AugmentedExpand
Emergence of Virtual Reality as a Tool for Upper Limb Rehabilitation: Incorporation of Motor Control and Motor Learning Principles
TLDR
The objectives of this article are to review motor control and motor learning principles, to discuss how they can be exploited by virtual reality training environments, and to provide evidence concerning current applications for upper limb motor recovery. Expand
A task-specific interactive game-based virtual reality rehabilitation system for patients with stroke: a usability test and two clinical experiments
TLDR
The RehabMaster is a feasible and safe VR system for enhancing upper extremity function in patients with stroke and reported advantages from the usability tests were improved attention, the immersive flow experience, and individualised intervention. Expand
A Robotic Ball for Upper-Extremity Training in Stroke Patients: A New Approach in Neurorehabilitation
TLDR
Patients severely or slightly impaired seemed to benefit less than moderately affected stroke patients and the robotic ball was rated as excellent with 92.3±2.5 out of a maximum 100 points. Expand
Motor intervention with and without Nintendo® Wii for children with developmental coordination disorder: protocol for a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
This protocol is presented to systematically compare the effects of two motor-training programs (one Nintendo® Wii-based and the other no-Wii motor activities) on the motor learning in children with DCD, and suggests that training with Nintendo®, Wii may be particularly beneficial for children withDCD. Expand
Efficacy of neurodevelopmental treatment combined with the Nintendo® Wii in patients with cerebral palsy
TLDR
The results showed that neuro developmental treatment is effective for improving hand functions in hemiplegic cerebral palsy and the Nintendo Wii may be used in addition to neurodevelopmental treatment to provide a enjoyable, motivational, safe, and effective rehabilitation program. Expand
Cocina virtual para ayudar en la rehabilitación de personas con lesiones cerebrales mediante entrenamiento en una actividad cotidiana

TLDR
The current "state of the art" for virtual reality (VR) applications in the field of motor rehabilitation is reviewed and movements learned by people with disabilities in VR transfer to real world equivalent motor tasks in most cases, and in some cases even generalize to other untrained tasks. Expand
Virtual reality-augmented rehabilitation for patients following stroke.
TLDR
The outcomes suggest that VR may be useful to augment rehabilitation of the upper limb in patients in the chronic phase following stroke. Expand
Virtual Reality–Induced Cortical Reorganization and Associated Locomotor Recovery in Chronic Stroke: An Experimenter-Blind Randomized Study
TLDR
This is the first fMRI study in the literature that provides evidence for neuroplasticity and associated locomotor recovery after VR and suggests that VR could induce cortical reorganization from aberrant ipsilateral to contralateral SMC activation. Expand
Effectiveness of Virtual Reality Exercises in STroke Rehabilitation (EVREST): Rationale, Design, and Protocol of a Pilot Randomized Clinical Trial Assessing the Wii Gaming System
TLDR
EVREST is the first randomized parallel controlled trial assessing the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of virtual reality using Wii gaming technology in stroke rehabilitation and will serve as the basis for a larger multicentre trial. Expand
Using a multi-task adaptive VR system for upper limb rehabilitation in the acute phase of stroke
TLDR
The results suggest that the system induces a sustained improvement during treatment, with observed benefits in the performance of activities of daily living. Expand
Virtual Reality in the Rehabilitation of the Upper Limb after Stroke: The User's Perspective
TLDR
The interaction of healthy users and those following stroke was assessed, in terms of their experience of presence in the VE and the rate of self-reported side effects. Expand
Sensorimotor Training in a Virtual Reality Environment: Does It Improve Functional Recovery Poststroke?
TLDR
It is difficult in current service delivery models to provide the intensity of practice that appears to be needed to effect neural reorganization and functional changes poststroke, so computerized exercise systems may be a way to maximize both the patients’ and the clinicians’ time. Expand
Virtual reality-based post-stroke hand rehabilitation.
TLDR
A VR-based system using a CyberGlove and a Rutgers Master II-ND haptic glove was used to rehabilitate four post-stroke patients in the chronic phase, showing gains in thumb range, speed, fractionation and strength. Expand
Effects of virtual reality training on gait biomechanics of individuals post-stroke.
TLDR
These findings are encouraging because they support the potential for recovery of force and power of the lower extremity for individuals with chronic hemiparesis and elucidate underlying mechanisms that contributed to the observed functional improvement in gait speed and distance. Expand
Virtual reality based intervention in rehabilitation: relationship between motor and cognitive abilities and performance within virtual environments for patients with stroke
The objective of this study was to provide experimental data to support a proposed model of VRbased intervention. More specifically our goal was to examine the relationships between cognitive andExpand
