Abstract

Physical Medicine and Motor Rehabilitation is a medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of different pathologies. This process is characterized by the repetition of movements, becoming dull and off- putting. Over the past few years, new strategies have been introduced, including virtual games, as the objective of making this process more fun and motivating. This article presents a proposal for a mobile device for conducting virtual games that support the professionals of Physical Medicine and Motor Rehabilitation, held either in a clinical setting or at home. It is intended that these professionals as well as patients, may take advantage of the potential of virtual interactive gaming in a simpler and convenient way.
