Abstract

We designed a tablet game to diagnose, train, and
assess the rehabilitative progress of hemi-spatial neglect
patients. We found that a set of parameters from fitting Fitts’
law to hit delays in a whack-a-mole game can be used to
identify neglect patients due to the asymmetry between
performance on the left and right hand sides of the screen.
Performance improvements were evident in in-game metrics as
well as to the patients through summary screens.
