Development of a Virtual Reality Spatial Retraining Therapy to Improve Neglect in Stroke Survivors

The purpose of this research study is to design and develop a computer-based treatment software using Virtual Reality (VR) technology. The project will develop essential elements of the software named VR Spatial Retraining Therapy (VR-SRT) System. The ultimate goal is to help stroke survivors regain spatial functions that are important in locating objects, finding personal belongings, paying attention to traffic when crossing streets, and making body movements toward the side of space affected by the stroke.
