Abstract

This paper investigates the post-stroke adult population and their motivation to use virtual reality rehabilitation in the rehabilitation process. The study was conducted on 10 patients, part of a rehabilitation program at NeuroRehab, Sydvestjysk Sygehus, Grindsted, Denmark. The sample of patients was divided into a control group and an experimental group, where the experimental group practiced additionally 30 min of training using a virtual reality rehabilitation system. The system consists of: a head mounted display – Oculus Rift, a motion sensor controller – Leap Motion, a desktop computer and a custom built task simulator game.
