Rehabilitation and assistive augmentation

Information Technology and Communication Sciences        1 ECTS



In this module, we will look at different technologies for physical and motor rehabilitation, including exergames, virtual reality, gestures, robots, etc. Examples from research and current medical practices will be described, along with their benefits and limitations. Further, trends in assistive augmentation, e.g. technologies that enable us to enhance physical, sensorial, and cognitive capabilities, will be discussed.


After completing this module, students will be able to critically reflect on current research and medical application that focus on rehabilitation and assistive augmentation, and the difference between the two approaches. Further, by considering the design of an assistive augmentation application, students will develop a nuanced understanding of disabilities and abilities, critically thinking beyond stereotypical notions of disabilities.
