Overview/Background● Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in children● Virtual Reality (VR) is an increasingly popular physical therapy intervention strategy● Current VR solutions are not designed with patient and caregiver input to address specific needs● Microsoft Kinect allows us to create tailored experiences for patient and caregiver
Kollect● A fun and versatile game to promote activity and health in youth with CP● Utilizing the Kinect, players collect colored shapes scoring points in 2-10 minute sessions while standing or seated● Settings ranging from piece variety, session length, and graphical fidelity can be adjusted
Remote Features● Settings can be remotely changed by patient/therapist to set specific parameters● Game communicates with online reporting database (for multiple players)● Database catalogues patient joint angles (functional mobility) and location of in-game collected pieces (accuracy) and other therapeutic metrics
drexelkollect.com● www.drexelkollect.com is a frontend portal for Kollects statistic reporting● Googles visualization API provides a way to easily visualize data from play sessions in graphs and maps● Visualizations allow therapist and patient to track progress and performance
