The University of Alberta has procured an EON Icube Mobile as part of a study on analyzing the effect virtual reality has on rehabilitation. To do this, the University of Alberta will raise an Icube Mobile by three feet (~1m) and affix a wheelchair treadmill to its structure. This installation will be part of their Rehabilitation Robotics Lab in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. UAlberta’s Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine is North America’s only dedicated faculty dedicated to rehabilitation science and physical therapy. They are also a research leader in musculoskeletal health and spinal cord injuries.
Listen to Professor Martin Ferguson-Pell, from the University of Alberta, speak on integrating Virtual/Augmented Reality into e-learning for clinical professionals in rehabilitation.
