Music in Motion™ – Upper Body and Core Movement
Patients use therapeutic motions like visual scanning, core control, and hip and shoulder flexion while engaging in musically driven exercises across five reactive environments. Music in Motion is designed for use during physical and cognitive rehabilitation. Customize Music in Motion rhythms and movements to help promote the recovery of lost function.
Impairments Supported by Virtual Reality
- Mobility of Joints/Range of Motion(ROM)
- Muscle Tonicity
- Control of Voluntary Movement
- Musculoskeletal Skills
- Short Term & Procedural Memory
Music in Motion uses music- and rhythm-based activities to help foster positive patient attitudes toward rehabilitation. Patients work on visual scanning, trunk control, and bilateral shoulder and knee movements. Patients must coordinate body movements timed to music to receive rewards and visualize their progress from session to session.
Utilize cervical ROM and visual scanning to spot critters hiding within the environment. Each critter will peek out from behind various objects and then hide again. To reveal each critter, hold the gaze-pointer on the hiding critter.
Lean into the Music™
Use cervical ROM, trunk control, and core stabilization to help a tropical bird reach various targets. Control the bird s flight path by moving the head and torso in the direction of each target.
Reach for the Rhythm™
Utilize trunk control, dynamic balance, and functional reach to touch colored targets as they fly by. The virtual avatar wears colored bands to help with right and left side color coordination.
Turn with the Tempo™
Use wrist/forearm pronation and supination to match and properly align colored music notes held by the virtual avatar to the rotation of incoming colored notes.
Step to the Beat™
Stepping on a steady stream of colored targets helps exercise lower extremity ROM, dynamic balance, and endurance. The virtual avatar wears colored shoes to help with right and left side color coordination.
