Virtual kayaking for stroke rehab

Stoke recovery patients were asked to play an exergame (Recovery Rapids) at home for three weeks and compared the results to patients who asked to do traditional therapy, and the results were similar.

"Motor practice: Participants agreed to play Recovery Rapids for a total of 15 hours (1·5 hours per day) on 10 treatment days over three weeks. This treatment schedule was designed to dose-match the duration of active motor practice provided in CI therapy (the same duration of active motor practice could be accomplished in half of the time because gaming treatment involves continuous practice without breaks for task set-up; automated feedback also occurs concurrently with game play). Participants could self-pace their game play (i.e., pause for short rests or begin another session later)."
