Interactive Technology Helps Neurorehab Patients to Create “Healing Art”

Home / Interactive Technology Helps Neurorehab Patients to Create “Healing Art”

An interactive computer program, engineered as a rehabilitation biofeedback tool, has reportedly been found by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center to be safe and well-tolerated by patients receiving occupational, recreational, or physical therapy to assist in recovery from central nervous system injuries. The tool, known as Embedded Arts, can be used to address injuries that include traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), strokes, and spinal cord injuries (SCIs).

A news release from the university states that the system is designed to tap into artistic and creative neural pathways during standard rehabilitation exercises. By using real-time data from biophysical sensors, the program integrates creative processes within rehabilitation therapies by transforming them into art, according to Lise Worthen-Chaudhari, MFA, MS, CCRC, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation, associate director of the Motion Analysis and Recovery Laboratory at Ohio State.
