Effects of Virtual Reality on the Upper Extremity Spasticity and Motor Function in Patients with Stroke: A Single Blinded Randomized Controlled Trial.
Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or stroke is a disabling neurological disease with a current progressive trend of incidence especially due to urbanization. This disease is not limited to the developed countries and its annual incidence rate in developing nations has been reported 145 in 100,000 subjects that even may be seen in 10 to 15 percent of subjects younger than 40 years of that is of great public health significance because strokes in younger subjects carry the potential for greater lifetime burden of disability and because some contributing risk factors identified for this trend toward increasing stroke incidence at younger ages are modifiable…

Regarding use of M.S. Kinect in research setting, it is possible that patient’s movements be transferred to monitor by developed software during treatment course with motor sensor. This matter helps to develop the future actions by patient’s reflections. Such tools can increase the patient’s attention and involvement in the treatment activities. Hence in this study the effects of virtual reality plus conventional rehabilitation therapy versus conventional rehabilitation alone on the wrist and elbow spasticity and motor function beside active range of motion in shoulder abduction, wrist extension, and elbow extension in patients with stroke were evaluated .Download Document and Read Full Text
Feasibility of VR-based rehabilitation of shoulder impingement syndrome in athletes
The painful shoulder is the most common condition seen in sport injury clinics. Subacromial impingement syndrome is affected by scapular motion and position. Scapular dyskinesis is a potential impairment to optimum shoulder function which should be diagnosed and managed as an important part of a treatment protocol. Subacromial impingement syndrome is developed due to contraction of the anatomical structures passing through the subacromial fossa…Download Document and Read Full Text
