Kessler Foundation and USC collaborate on clinical virtual reality for disability research
Date:1/10/2012

West Orange, NJ. January 10, 2012. Kessler Foundation and the University of Southern California (USC) Institute for Creative Technologies will collaborate on clinical research projects applying virtual reality technology to cognitive and motor rehabilitation research. The goal, according to USC's Albert Rizzo, PhD of the Institute's Medical Virtual Reality research group, is to conduct research to develop the evidence base to support the future of home-based rehabilitation that is effective, convenient and affordable.

Kessler Foundation and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) are an ideal match said Kessler Foundation's vice president for research John DeLuca, PhD.

This collaboration will enable us to assess patients in controllable interactive virtual environments and test rehabilitation interventions in settings that reflect the challenges of everyday life.

USC is also home to a NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center that focuses on using VR to address the challenges of aging and disability. Kessler Foundation's rehabilitation research focuses on the patient populations likely to benefit from virtual reality rehabilitationbrain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions. Foundation researchers have developed a virtual reality driving simulator to help people with disabilities relearn driving skills. The Foundation receives NIDRR funding for model systems in both brain and spinal cord inj
