Abstract

This paper shares code that enables the making of a Virtual Interactive Space (VIS) where the skin of the invisible active sensor area is dynamically responsive to the velocity of a limb e.g. hand. Used in proprioception training of movement the patch is at the core of the author’s Reafferentation concept, which takes advantage of human natural and unconscious capacity. The mapping of the patch to a sound (e.g. drum, thus realizing an ‘air-drum’) resulted in increased client engagement in physiotherapist-led movement training sessions. The paper also reflects on how a cable-less physical environment augments the research.
