Virtual Occupational Therapy Assistant

Virtual Occupational Therapy Assistant (VOTA™) is a motion tracking gaming system to help stroke victims relearn how to do everyday activities while tracking the movement made by their limbs.

VOTA™ was developed in recognition of the need for a game based learning application for stroke therapy that is fun, accessible, and meaningful in the context of occupational therapy objectives – in other words relearning skills that permit functional independence at home. Task-directed therapy appears to be a critical element to the regeneration of cortical function in regions of the brain responsible for related neurological activity. The VOTA™ serious game was focused around a 3D scenario system that allows patients to use their arms to put away groceries, cook dinner, and do actions they will face every day.
