At the VR4REHAB Hackathon on 20-21-22 April, we will challenge the participants to find Virtual Reality (VR) solutions for rehabilitation patients. Look below for more information about the theme’s we’d like to adress during this Hackathon.

VR for walk and gait impairments

Noël Keijsers, senior researcher for the Sint Maartenskliniek, presents his challenge, to find VR solutions for the adults with walk and gait impairments, to help them train and improve their gait after their training in the clinic.

VR for ‘pirate group’

Pauline Aarts, manager of the children’s rehabilitation at the Sint Maartenskliniek, presents her challenge, to find VR solutions for the children of the very special pirate group.

VR for pain management

Denis Martin, Professor of Rehabilitation at the Teesside Univerity in England, gives us some hints about pain and its management and asks a fundamental question: what can VR do for pain management?

VR for engagement and immersion to promote treatment adherence

Professor Dido Green from Royal Free London NHS Trust gives us some hints about how VR can be used for the Engagement and immersion to promote treatment adherence.

VR for behavioural therapy after Traumatic Brain Injury

PD Dr. Kristina Müller of the Verbund Katholischer Kliniken Düsseldorf presents her challenge.

Virtual Reality (VR) is rapidly growing. However, in healthcare –especially in rehabilitation medicine- it is still very much in its infancy. And this technology can make therapy more fun, challenging and better (monitored).

Do you have ideas? Or do you want to help create new virtual rehabilitation treatments? Then we need you!
