Virtual reality and stroke rehabilitation: a mixed reality simulation of an everyday task
Hilton, David (2008) Virtual reality and stroke rehabilitation: a mixed reality simulation of an everyday task. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis is about the process of designing a computer simulation as a treatment tool for stroke rehabilitation. A stroke is a debilitating disease that is characterised by focal neural damage usually leading to physical and cognitive impairments. These impairments may severely compromise the stroke survivor's ability to perform everyday tasks of self-care such as dressing, washing and preparing meals. Safety issues are also an important consideration for the rehabilitation of the stroke survivor. Some everyday tasks can be hazardous, particularly when electrical equipment or hot liquids are involved.
