Augmented Reflection Technology Group

The Augmented Reflection Technology Group develops computer-assisted therapy systems using Augmented Reflection Technology (ART).

The ART system projects a moving, real time image of a person’s limbs via a computer and camera, using an augmented mirror box (AMB). This projection provides a bimanual, or mirror box, illusion, which can be used to help treat symptoms of unilateral impairment associated with paralysis and pain.

Our prototype system is unique and involves mixed reality environments and augmented reality control mechanisms. It uses a desktop computer interface and has the capacity to simulate therapeutically augmented games and exercises.

We are following a multi-disciplinary approach involving researchers from Information Science, Psychology, Physiotherapy and business partners.
