Abstract

The capability of virtual reality to create dynamic three-dimensional realistic environments, within which behavioural responses to stimulus can be assessed, offers many new opportunities in cognitive rehabilitation. This paper proposes a framework for an integrated rehabilitation management system to support the home-based cognitive rehabilitation for people suffering from acquired brain injury. An approach to develop Internet-enabled exercises based on existing clinical activities is presented. These exercises, which incorporate both virtual telephone and computer-interfaced prosthesis, would enable people with memory impairment to perform exercises in their homes under the supervision of trained caregivers.
