Treat cerebral palsy with virtual reality
Cerebral Palsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in children, affecting body movement and muscle coordination. One of the most successful therapies to improve upper-extremity motor function is Hand-Arm Bimanual Intensive Therapy (HABIT). However, as the name suggests, the therapeutic regimen is rather intense, resulting in a high dropout rate.
Researchers at the Munroe-Meyer Institute at UNMC have developed a virtual reality environment full of games tailored to children with cerebral palsy. Called HABIT-VR, the games package the HABIT therapy regimen in fun, engaging environments that can be scaled to ability level. HABIT-VR is a therapeutic VR software for children with cerebral palsy.
