OBJECTIVE Rehabilitation of upper-limb sensorimotor function in children with motor dysfunctions is primarily based on movement training. This study developed a virtual-reality based, paediatric interactive therapy system (PITS) that allows children to practice specific movements of the upper limbs with immediate feedback about their motor performance. METHODS The system was tested on five children with motor dysfunctions over 3 weeks of training. Pre- and post-assessment was conducted before… CONTINUE READING
