Abstract

The aim of this paper was to evaluate the practicality of the Surrey Virtual Rehabilitation System (SVRS) for reaching exercises with children with CP. Five potential users or operators (two children with CP, a physiotherapist, and two clinical engineers) participated in the study. Using 11 closed-ended questions and an open discussion, the feedback collected indicates that the participants were generally positive about the practicality of the SVRS. Outcome measures obtained from data gathered during the session suggest that the SVRS can provide clinically relevant feedback on the performance of patients for themselves and their treating clinicians. In conclusion, the SVRS seems to be practical for rehabilitation purposes and further development and evaluation are warranted.
