An Interactive Multimedia System for Parkinson’s Patient Rehabilitation
This paper describes a novel real-time Multimedia Rehabilitation Environment for the rehabilitation of patients with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). The system integrates two well known physical therapy techniques, multimodal sensory cueing and BIG protocol, with visual and auditory feedback to created an engaging mediated environment. The environment has been designed to fulfill the both the needs of the physical therapist and the patient.
