Flex VR is a virtual reality application to help aging patients reach their rehab goals by making repetitive movements more pleasurable, entertaining, and creative. Utilizing these technologies, we can transform the negative experience of PT exercise into a pleasurable one for the patient, providing sensory distraction and cues for feedback on performance. This technology will allow clinicians to collect data about the frequency and quality of the exercises, while also giving an accurate visual representation of the user’s body and limb position. Doctors will then be able to measure results and monitor progress, improving medical care and patient outcomes.
