Rehabilitation is a painful and tiring process involving series of exercises that patients must repeat over a long period. Unfortunately, patients often grow bored, frustrated, and lose motivation making rehabilitation less effective. In the recent years video games have been widely used to implement rehabilitation protocols so as to make the process more entertaining, engaging and to keep patients motivated. In this paper, we present an integrated framework we developed for the wristarXiv:1805.00901v1 fatcat:q3yhclqzn5bwriy6giisitrata

The framework comprises four video games and a set modules that let the therapists tune and control the exercises the games implemented, record all the patients actions, replay and analyze the sessions. We present the result of a preliminary validation we performed with four poliarticular JIA patients at the clinic under the supervision of the therapists. Overall, we received good feedback both from the young patients, who enjoyed performing known rehabilitation exercises using video games, and therapists who were satisfied with the framework and its potentials for engaging and motivating the patients.
Patients undergoing physical rehabilitation therapy must perform series of exercises regularly over a long period of time to improve, or at least not to worsen, their condition. Rehabilitation can easily become boring because of the tedious repetition of simple exercises, which can also cause mild pain and discomfort. As a consequence, patients often fail to follow their rehabilitation schedule with the required regularity, thus endangering their recovery. In the last decade, video games havearXiv:2006.02187v1 fatcat:f7zicqnfmnfqdbzwccq7jjkvne

In this paper, we present a framework integrating serious games for the lower-limb rehabilitation of children suffering from Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). The framework comprises games that implement parts of the therapeutic protocol followed by the young patients and provides modules to tune, control, record, and analyze the therapeutic sessions. We present the result of a preliminary validation we performed with patients at the clinic under therapists supervision. The feedback we received has been overall very positive both from patients, who enjoyed performing their usual therapy using video games, and therapists, who liked how the games could keep the children engaged and motivated while performing the usual therapeutic routine.
BackgroundIn primary antibody deficiencies (PADs), pulmonary complications are the main cause of morbidity, despite immunoglobulin substitutive therapy, antibiotic treatment of exacerbations, and respiratory physiotherapy. Current Italian recommendations for surveillance of PADs respiratory complications include an annual assessment of spirometry and execution of chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) every 4 years.ObjectiveThis study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the lungdoi:10.3389/fped.2022.773751 fatcat:klzhin65mvd75ndx4ooxwzxen4

LCI is measured by multiple breath washout (MBW), a non-invasive and highly specific test widely used in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).MethodsPediatric patients with PADs (n = 17, 10 male, 7 female, and age range 5–15 years) underwent baseline assessment of lung involvement with chest HRCT, spirometry, and multiple breath nitrogen washout. Among them, 13 patients were followed up to repeat HRCT after 4 years, while performing pulmonary function tests annually. Their baseline and follow-up LCI and forced expiratory volume at 1 s (FEV1) values were compared, taking HRCT as the gold standard, using logistic regression analysis.ResultsLung clearance index [odds ratio (OR) 2.3 (confidence interval (CI) 0.1–52) at baseline, OR 3.9 (CI 0.2–191) at follow-up] has a stronger discriminating power between altered and normal HRCT rather than FEV1 [OR 0.6 (CI 0.2–2) at baseline, OR 1.6 (CI 0.1–13.6) at follow-up].ConclusionWithin the context of a limited sample size, LCI seems to be more predictive of HRCT alterations than FEV1 and more sensitive than HRCT in detecting non-uniform ventilation in the absence of bronchiectasis. A study of a larger cohort of pediatric patients followed longitudinally in adulthood is needed to challenge these findings.
