Island Antics™ – Reconditioning and Motor Functions
Island Antics is designed for patients who need to work on reconditioning and motor functions, including therapeutic motions to exercise trunk control, functional reach, reaction time, fluid movements, postural control, coordination, and cross-body movements.
Island Antics is a fun world where patients are regarded as heroes for helping island citizens perform various tasks.
Island Antics promotes big, dynamic movements to help improve range of movement, internal cuing mechanisms for normal movement patterns, postural stability, and coordination. At the same time, it can help address impairments like resting tremor, postural instability, bradykinesia, hypokinesia, depressed moods, and loss of cognitive function (e.g., sustained attention, difficulty changing strategies quickly).
Impairments Supported by Virtual Reality
- Mobility of Joints
- Muscle Tone
- Muscle Endurance
- Control of voluntary movement functions
- Neuromusculoskeletal skills
- Psychomotor Skills
- Sequencing Skills
Motion Rehabilitation Activities
In Island Antics, patients play the role of the giant hero who island citizens hire to help perform various tasks in their bustling, oceanic city.
Save the Seagulls™
Using trunk control, functional reach, and cross-body motions, the patient tosses UFO drones like frisbees to keep them from poaching seagulls.
Using trunk control, functional reach, and dynamic balance, the patient must reach out to help citizens cross a street that is blocked by a beached whale. The patient must reach out to pick up a citizen, follow the path visualization, and place the citizen on the other side of the street.
Leaks and Levers™
Sea creatures are blocking the pipes. Using shoulder flexion and extension, patients pull levers and carefully turn valves to unclog the pipes and send creatures back to the sea.
Using functional reach and trunk movement, patients must reach out to pull the slingshot and send coconuts through the air onto floating cargo ships. Slingshot paths can be lengthened or shortened based on patient needs.
