If successful branch out to other opportunities. Offer a less complex version for people to purchase in order to rehabilitate/exercise in the comfort of their own homes. Patients will rarely ever need assistance in rehabilitation process. Rehabilitation games could lead to other types of fitness games (ie games that specifically focus on burning fat, or games that focus on core strength to prevent and alleviate back pain for the older demographic).

  • 11. interactive medical solutions identifying the problem Maxwell Abbott Connie Chung Jason Bailey Design Development “ W h a t Tr i n a t h e Tr a i n e r s a y s 03.12.08 about the problem” Children who suffer from Cerebral Palsy, must participate in rehabilitation practices that can be boring, tedious and, one dimensional. Children experience doctors visits that can be frightening, or intimidating, and can discourage the family from successful completion of their prescribed program.
  • 12. interactive medical solutions concept creation Maxwell Abbott Connie Chung Jason Bailey Design Development 03.12.08 D r. Ya y S a y s , “ We h a v e a S o l u t i o n ! ” To provide an alternative to existing CP therapy exercises that will engage, and ultimately improve the over all condition of the child. By redesigning the rehabilitation process to suit the needs of those children, we believe it will provide increased results than existing conventional methods. Children today are becoming much more accustomed to interacting with technology than generations prior. We feel it is important for the CP therapy programs to adapt to this evolution.
  • 13. interactive medical solutions researching the disease Maxwell Abbott Connie Chung Jason Bailey Design Development 03.12.08 “What is Cerebral Palsy?” Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills (the ability to move in a coordinated and purposeful way). Cerebral palsy can also lead to other health issues, including vision, hearing, and speech problems, and learning disabilities. CP is usually caused by brain damage that occurs before or during a child’s birth, or during the first 3 to 5 years of a child’s life. There is no cure for CP, but treatment, therapy, special equipment, and, in some cases, surgery can help a child who is living with the condition The three types of CP are: 
 1.
 spastic cerebral palsy — causes stiffness and movement difficulties 
 2.
 athetoid cerebral palsy — leads to involuntary and uncontrolled movements 
 3.
 ataxic cerebral palsy — causes a disturbed sense of balance and depth perception

  • 38. interactive medical solutions Shortcomings and Limitations Maxwell Abbott Connie Chung Jason Bailey Design Development 03.12.08 Parents do not approve of kids playing video games. Insurance does not cover. It is successful with the children but not with the older patients or vice versa. Games may be hard to follow and may constantly need simplifying. Implementing new technology in an old system. Technical difficulties may slow down the program and process of achieving fitness goal. If the program is used at home without professional assistance, patients will lack motivation.
