A new Video-game-assisted physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercises called the Schroth Method for idiopathic scoliosis: case series and introduction of a new tool to increase motivation and precision of exercise performance” helps treat scoliosis through video game physiotherapy.
- We aimed to investigate the influence of this tool on motivation to perform regularly and, correctly, and with self-assessment of performance quality.
- the actual training time to assess motivation, the ratio of the actual playing time versus total playing time to assess exercise improvement.
- Distracting the mind with the game during the exercise session could also hasten progress to the autonomic phase of motor learning.
“The Physiogame software was specifically designed for use with these two standardized exercises. It uses the hardware of the Game-Trak 3D interactive game controller (In2Games Ltd, Rickmansworth, UK), a 3-dimensional game control system based on position tracking.”
