[Poster Abstract] GameBall: the development of a novel platform to provide enjoyable and affordable hand and arm rehabilitation following stroke

Purpose: Poor arm recovery post-stroke can lead to increased dependence, reduced quality of life, and is a strong predictor of lower psychological well being following stroke. Effective treatment interventions are characterised by repetitive practice. This repetitive nature can make doing exercises boring, and coupled with a lack of community resources ongoing rehabilitation of the arm is challenging. Therefore effective home-based stroke rehabilitation devices that are motivating and enjoyable to use, and affordable are needed.
