About This Game

VR designed for awe and rehab.
The experience combines virtual art, technology, and rehabilitation.
When we, in reality, are contained to our home, nursing home, or hospital room. We can in the virtual reality experience wonder in new, calming worlds.
A remarkable intersection between art, pain relief, and exercise.

some voices in betatesting:
wow! So beautiful and peaceful! I want to use this as a relaxing break in my computer work!

I love the small figures in the sea landscape and the growing flowers in the yoga session.


So beautiful music and peaceful surroundings! The voice of the psyiotherapist is so relaxing!

So nice to walk around, looking for growing flowers and make the waterdrops water the landscape.

I forgot my pain and that I am in a boring institution! thank you! so full of fantasy and awe!


Within the VR-headset, the player is surrounded by calming forests and oceanscapes, sounds of nature, and classical music.
The player can also perform yoga and physiotherapy exercises with a personal, virtual trainer.
By orienteering with a map in a 3D environment, the player can practice and develop their cognition.
The exercises and movements have been designed by professional yoga instructors and physiotherapists that work with rehabilitation.

MENU
In the game’s menu the player can choose
options for language, environment, exercises,
standing or sitting, and easy or more advanced difficulty. Easy difficulty excludes
movements above shoulder height.

EXPLORATION:
Yoga, Physiotherapy
The player can explore visual and calming
worlds at their own pace, either by sitting
or standing. By using the controller, the
player moves through ocean- and forest
environments, and makes their way to either
a yoga- or physio-therapy exercise with
different difficulty levels.

3D Orienteering
VR enables a unique opportunity to train 3D
orienteering via a map. This may develop the
coordination between mind and body, since
the player learns to navigate to different
targets.
Yoga och Physiotherapy
Through paintings, the player enters either
an oceanscape or a redwood forest. They are
then automatically transported to a previously chosen yoga- or physiotherapy session.

Rewards
Besides relaxation, exploration, and exercise,
the player is rewarded with for instance growing flowers and trees, northern lights, and
water drops. These rewards and the beautiful
environments and sounds can create awe and
motivate the player to return to the game and
the exercise.

Personal Trainer
The player exercises with other 3D-characters, which simulates a group session with a
virtual instructor.

Research
There are many scientific reports about the
advantages of VR. In virtual reality, the brain
is ”tricked” into believing that it is in a new
location. VR distracts from pain, and can
relieve stress and anxiety.

Technology
All characters in the game are created through
motion capture technology in co-operation
with the university of Lund’s Humlabb.

To play Virtual Rehab, you need:
● a VR headset with the associated
controller for Oculus rift or HTC Vive.
