Chang, Yao-Jen; Chen, Shu-Fang; Huang, Jun-Da
Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v32 n6 p2566-2570 Nov-Dec 2011
This study assessed the possibility of rehabilitating two young adults with motor impairments using a Kinect-based system in a public school setting. This study was carried out according to an ABAB sequence in which A represented the baseline and B represented intervention phases. Data showed that the two participants significantly increased their motivation for physical rehabilitation, thus improving exercise performance during the intervention phases. Practical and developmental implications of the findings are discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
