Dual-Task Rehabilitation Exercises

Even the simplest every day activities require that we coordinate our motor and cognitive functions to complete them correctly. This applies to all types of activities, not only to those that we normally relate to the activities of daily living. And it is for this reason that there are exercises that combine physical and cognitive goals within the same task. These exercises are normally known as a being dual-task. Moreover, this type of exercises are very useful for occupational therapists and it is important to include them into the rehabilitation treatment plans of patients. Rehametrics has 8 exercises designed specifically for patients to train with these dual-task exercises.

Dual-task virtual rehabilitation task

The Rehametrics virtual reality software provides occupational therapists with fully personalizable exercises. Patients will complete prescribed exercises while, at the same time, our software will automatically adjust exercise difficulty according to patient performance during the session. The more successful attempts each patient obtains, the more difficult the exercise will become. On the other hand, if patients do not perform as well during the session, the exercise will become easier. In this way, Rehametrics will be constantly searching for the optimum level of difficulty for each patient. That is, a level of difficulty that is not too difficult to become frustrating nor too easy to decrease patient motivation.

On top of that, clinicians can configure the amount of time patients have to complete each task as well as, many other personalization options that, for example, allow healthcare professionals to modify the number of distractors that will appear on screen simultaneously, among other parameters. These rehabilitation exercises, which were designed to improve how patients complete activities of daily living, also include multiple levels of difficulty. Moreover, they were designed to train dual-task type exercises. That is, rehabilitation exercises that train both physical and cognitive clinical goals simultaneously.

Detailed monitorization for prescribed rehabilitation sessions

While patients complete rehabilitation sessions prescribed by their clinicians, Rehametrics quantifies -automatically- each session to offer healthcare professionals objective information on their performance for each patient. In this way, while patients complete the occupational therapy exercises available in Rehametrics, our software will register the number of correct and incorrect answers and average response times for each level of difficulty, among other parameters.

All of this clinical data can then be used by clinicians to obtain an objective view of patient evolution during the rehabilitation process.
