Modified Home Video Game Shows Promise for Stroke Rehabilitation

Caption: Ciprian Docan, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering at Rutgers University, demonstrates a modified home video game system to assist stroke patients with hand exercises. The system, costing less than $600, may one day rival systems 10 times as expensive. It is an example of virtual rehabilitation, which combines virtual reality with traditional therapy techniques.
