Abstract

Strokes are a major cause of motor, perceptual and cognitive dysfunction. Thus, perceptual stimulation in individuals with stroke is a fundamental procedure in the rehabilitation process, since it contributes to improved performance in activities of daily living. Perceptive rehabilitation could be performed with conventional procedures or by applying technology. However, the methods used to evaluate and treat perceptual changes using visual stimuli are generic and not personalized. Therefore, an innovative platform called RehabVisual was developed and already used with little children. It has the objective of stimulating the visuomotor competence. The platform is now applied to 3 subjects with stroke. The purpose of this article is to describe the platform and present the results of the application in stroke patients.
