Transforming Clinical Rehabilitation Into Interactive Multimedia

There has been an increased interest in using interactive multimedia as a mechanism for physical rehabilitation, including the direct usage of off-the-shelf games and gaming systems. Although, these games have been shown to have physical and psychosocial benefits in the elderly; they were limited when participants had significant physical and/or cognitive disabilities. The limited success in the use of gaming systems to promote rehabilitation may largely be due to the fact that the games being played on them were not designed with rehabilitation in mind and thus they do not necessarily target specific the symptoms or conditions of the disorder.
