After Brad Burns was partially paralyzed in a car accident, he underwent intense therapy and learned to walk again. An interactive arts program at Ohio State using biophysical sensor technology transformed Brad Burn’s movement into work of art. “The idea was the art, the product of art, like the visual art, would represent the struggle behind the art. And what’s more of a struggle than recovering from a neuroinjury?” said OSU Wexner Medical Center physical medicine and rehabilitation researcher Lise Worthen-Chaudhari. Each colorful mark Brad makes is data that can be analyzed. The idea is to distract patients and give them an opportunity to create while they work. In the first study to ever be published, researchers found patients enjoyed the program and some, like Brad, performed better than they did during standard therapy. This coverage resulted from pitching efforts and a multimedia release distributed by OSU Wexner Medical Center Public Affairs and Media Relations, available online at: http://wexnermedical.osu.edu/mediaroom/pressreleaselisting/Embedded-Arts-Interactive-Technology-Helps-Patients-in-Neurohabilitation-Therapy
