Music-based video games for arm and hand rehabilitation

Music-based video games for arm and hand rehabilitation

With Dr. Elaine Biddiss and Dr. Joyce Chen, I designed video games to allow children with cerebral palsy to access music therapy from home. By pairing motion tracking technology with music-supported rehabilitation therapy techniques, these therapies may enhance motor learning in a fun, engaging way.
