Title : Artificial intelligence and virtual reality kinect rehabilitation in stroke patients with unilateral spatial neglect
People with neglect suffer from various spatial deficits in several modalities, which in many cases impair everyday functioning. Virtual reality (VR) is a form of interaction between humans and computers in which a real or imaginary environment is simulated. Users interact with that world and manipulate it. Artificial intelligence (AI) can increase the efficacy of promoting and strengthening human activities
To investigate the extent to which the use of VR as an effective AI treatment technique for patients experiencing unilateral spatial neglect after stroke. Subjects: Thirty patients experiencing unilateral spatial neglect after stroke.
Patients were randomly assigned to two groups; a study group and a control group. The study group received VR Kinect rehabilitation and conventional treatment for eight weeks and the control group received conventional treatment using behavioral rehabilitation methods of physical therapy. The disorder was diagnosed with paper and pencil tests of extra-personal neglect, the Catherine Bergego Scale (CBS), and recently, promising new methods based on the number of repetitions of tasks on VR.
There was a highly significant difference between the study and control groups as the p-value was (0.0001) which indicated that the study group shows improvement more than the control group, and there was a correlation between the line cancellation task, the CBS, and the VR repetitions.
This study revealed that eight weeks of VR as an effective AI rehabilitation for every patient was a beneficial therapeutic technique for unilateral spatial neglect in stroke patients.
