Description

The VR4Rehab project specifically focuses on enabling the co-creation of Virtual Reality-based rehabilitation tools. By identifying and combining forces from SMEs active in the field of VR, Research Institute, clinics and patients VR4Rehab aims at creating a network in which the state-of-the-art VR-technology could meet the rehabilitation potential and thus answer to the needs of patients and of their therapists.

VR can help optimizing rehabilitation protocols, accelerating patients’ recovery, promoting treatment adherence and easing reintegration into daily life. VR4Rehab particularly addresses the rehabilitation of children affected by chronic diseases and disability, as well as adults stricken with fatigue and pain, providing them with challenging VR interventions.

Although VR technologies are widely diffused in several industries (gaming, training, etc.), there are not – up-to-now – tools specifically designed to provide lay persons with an environment that enables them and their therapists to safely extend rehabilitation extramurally.
