AUIN 2014 : Advanced User Interfaces for Neurorehabilitation
Call For Papers
Advanced User Interfaces for Neurorehabilitation (Special Issue of Biomed International, IF 2.88)
Call for Papers
A range of virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR) based systems have been developed as novel and relevant tools in neurorehabilitation, allowing the implementation and exploration of rehabilitation treatment tools to complement and improve upon traditional methods.
In this special issue both medical and engineering aspects of these tools will be addressed in order to explore which type of solutions or research trends are currently active in this field and can support and/or extend current clinical and home-based rehabilitation practices.
Original papers presenting development studies and evidence for the effectiveness of technologies, devices, specific applications, and treatment methodologies will be in the scope of this special issue.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Recent developments in rehabilitation technology
Advances in user interfaces and tracking devices for motor skills tracking
Virtual and augmented reality based rehabilitation and telerehabilitation
Large scale clinical trials using virtual rehabilitation
Assessment of new technology based therapies and related medical evaluation scales
Home based solutions for neurorehabilitation
Identification and discussion of challenges and objectives for integration of technologies into existing health system structures
