Project Summary
This project tests the concept of a personalised virtual reality (VR) rehabilitation programme using the Burwood Spinal Unit's (BSU) Transitionz environment (an independent living space). Such technology has great potential to augment rehabilitation for patients recovering from serious disabling conditions such as spinal cord injury (SCI).
