Virtual reality for motor rehabilitation of the shoulder
Researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have developed a virtual reality system for motor rehabilitation of the shoulder. The prototype, which includes a built-in movement sensor, allows the user to do controlled exercises as part of a football game.
The system is made up of software developed in the motor of a multiplatform videogame (Unity) combined with two novel technologies: Intel RealSense, a movement sensor that was recently taunched for developers, and Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality goggles, through which users can see the program and check which movements they are performing.
