Design and development of applications aimed at functional rehabilitation based on virtual reality (RV) and augmented (RA)
The University has extensive experience in the development of web and mobile applications aimed at functional rehabilitation and leisure.
The University has extensive experience in Reality Augmented and Virtual Reality fields, and offers its services of design and development of mobile applications and computer applications aimed, above all, in the field of functional rehabilitation, phobias treatment, leisure, etc. In the field of health, these applications are very important, since they combine fun and leisure as rehabilitation methodologies or training (serious games).
The way to establish communication between the user and the electronic device (computers, tablets, mobile phones, etc.) can be very diverse. The research group develops applications based on the user's natural interaction, either through a keyboard, voice, gestures, etc. varying according to your preferences. These applications can incorporate biosignals, which allow to measure, for example, if a player sweats, the number of heart beats and control a character through these markers, etc.
UIB IT professionals develop the software of an intelligent system capable of interacting with the user in a natural way.
The method is based on creating a user's virtual clone with all its anthropometric data.
The System of natural interaction with the computer (SINA Project) developed at the UIB is revealed as a rehabilitation tool for people who have deeply limited possibilities of movement. The project has been carried out successfully and that work has opened new paths for research and for the application of this computer tool, such as rehabilitation.
