Exercise at home with motion sensors and Virtual Reality
In the Voorkom & Herstel project, a consortium of private partners (Fantazm [main applicant], 2M Engineering) and (para)medical and sports partners are developing a product that aims to optimize and stimulate “exercise at home” by populations in various fields (rehabilitation, sport, orthopaedics, physical therapy). The product is based on motion sensors and Virtual Reality (VR). Movement sensors are used to control a VR application, which allows people to perform more and better specific exercises. The role of Erasmus MC and Rijndam Rehabilitation is 1) to define a relevant application in rehabilitation patient care (with the defined focus on arm-hand therapy), 2) to describe in more detail the product requirements; and 3) to test prototypes and provide feedback in an iterative process. The project is funded by the EU (OPZuid programme).
