Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Motion tracking sensors were added to a commercial SaeboGlove, enabling patients to engage in manual practice of instrumental activities of daily living in a computer-generated virtual world. Sensor-derived performance in completing functional tasks in the virtual environment was compared to real-world performance assessed using gold-standard measures. Statistical analysis of data collected during use by 15 stroke patients confirms the concurrent validity of the computer-generated measures.
