Computer game to help stroke patients recuperate

18th May 2012

A PC-based computer game that will help stroke sufferers recuperate has been developed by scientists at Newcastle University.

Called the Circus Challenge game, it has been created with a computer game studio that could help patients recover motor functions by using wireless controllers to perform virtual circus acts such as lion taming and plate spinning. The project has received a £1.5m grant from the Health Innovation Challenge Fund for further development. The aim is for patients to be able to play it in their own homes.
