Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Recent technological advances in the computer and games industries have transformed our homes and workplaces and are now making an impact in clinical settings. Computer-assisted rehabilitation programmes that make use of Virtual Reality are poised to revolutionise how therapy is delivered, but we still know relatively little about the potential benefits of this form of intervention. This review outlines our current knowledge and highlights some of the areas for future research.
