This Kinect Game Is Designed To Rehabilitate Stroke Patients – And It Works. Over 325,000 suffer from Hemiparesis, a weakness or inability to move one side of the body, which can occur after a stroke.

This Kinect Game Is Designed To Rehabilitate Stroke Patients – And It Works

Since rehab can be an incredibly difficult and expensive process, researchers at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center have come up with a new at-home healing processes – and it involves a game for the Kinect. Stroke victims who suffer from hemiparesis often have difficulty executing basic functions like eating or dressing; sadly, the most effective form of treatment, Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (or CI) is only able to be administered to less than 1% of affected patients. “Lack of access, transportation and cost are contributing barriers to receiving CI therapy,” said Lynne Gauthier, an assistant professor at OSU’s College of Medicine. “To address this disparity, our team developed a 3D gaming system to deliver CI therapy to patients in their homes.” “This novel model of therapy has shown positive results for individuals who have played the game.

Widening Access To Music Disabled and otherwise disadvantaged users, supported by imaginative teachers, therapists and community musicians have found many ways of using the remarkable musical "tool-kit" that goes by the name of "MIDIgrid".

Widening Access to Music With MIDIgrid

Here are just a few scenarios, with links to the support documentation that will help you try out these ideas for yourself: James, the new music teacher, has found that the school can boast few of the instrumental resources and skills necessary to to explore the simple improvisation ideas he was hoping to introduce to his eager young pupils. He makes it possible for more children to 'have a go' by creating instruments in MIDIgrid like those in the "Toast" grid. (See Example folder in the installation directory). CARE HERE Home Page. Care Here is a European Project funded under Framework V IST Key Action 1 supporting the programme for Applications Relating to Persons with Special Needs Including the Disabled and Elderly.


The objective of our project is to empower children and adults with special needs, the elderly in long term care and people undergoing rehabilitation in hospital or at home, following for example stroke or brain injury. By giving them access to affordable, appealing and readily usable state of the art technology for the improvement of their physical and cognitive skills using feedback from acoustic and visual stimuli.

We are concerned with the (re-)development of physical and cognitive skills by interaction with a responsive sound and visual environment: the improvement of motor control through direct and immediate feedback through the aural and visual senses. Research team and video links Review Material. Music Technology in Therapeutic and Health Settings: Wendy Magee: Livres anglais et étrangers. Develops New Technologies in Music Therapy. Berklee College of Music's Music Therapy and Electronic Production and Design departments have collaborated to develop cutting-edge music therapy software and hardware that extend beyond those offered for general clinical use.

Develops New Technologies in Music Therapy

Over the past semester, a class from Berklee's Music Therapy Department and a class from Berklee's Electronic Production and Design Department have worked to advance the technologies currently available in music therapy. For example, students and faculty have been developing new technologies to perfect video motion-tracking so clinicians can look at how physical therapy patients move and assess whether they're able to regain a wider range of motion because of their music therapy treatment. Student developers will demonstrate their current projects, and experiential demonstrations will take place in order for attendees to gain hands-on experience in technologies being discussed.

Après une carrière dans les affaires, je suis venu dès les années 1980 à la médecine naturelle à la suite de la lecture des livres : du Dr VALNET, de Jean Claude BOURRET et du Dr BELAICHE, et je me suis intéressé à l'Oligothérapie et à la Phytothérapie.

Présentation Paolo Bove - Kinesiologie musicothérapie

J'ai opté pour une façon différente d'aider les autres en faisant de nombreuses formations sur le développement personnel (écoute active, PNL, analyse transactionnelle, chromothérapie, etc.). Après avoir appris le AMMA (massage chinois), le massage de détente, je me suis tourné vers la Kinésiologie, qui avec son approche globale rassemblait tout ce que j'avais vu dans différentes formations.
