Marientina Gotsis, Vangelis Lympouridis and David Turpin gave a sneak peak of our rapid prototyping platform for upper body exercise games for individuals with spinal cord injury at IEEE Virtual Reality 2012 in Costa Mesa in March 2012. The project was accepted as a research demo presentation entitled Mixed Reality Game Prototypes for Upper Body Exercise and Rehabilitation”. Participants were able to test several new concepts developed for spinal alignment, resistance training, stretching and free play. The project is funded by NIDRR through USC’s OPTT-RERC center.
