Krisaf (www.krisaf.com) and Biart Company (www.biart7.com) are happy to announce the completion of their joint project – a virtual reality-based training simulator designed for the physical rehabilitation of children afflicted with cerebral palsy.
The rehabilitation process is based on the concept of effective patient motivation through immersion in a virtual 3D marine game environment. This is the first ever highly realistic computer environment available for children with motor impairments.
Children get the opportunity to engage in activities typical for their healthier peers: explore the underwater world, perform different tasks, and take pictures while searching for treasures as well as compete in mini-games with dolphins, manta rays, and turtles. They can do all that completely independently thanks to the unique controller designed by the Krisaf Company!
The virtual environment is based on the Depth Hunter game developed by the Biart Company. The company has modified the original product a great deal by utilizing the new version of the biEngine programming technology.
At this time, the project is being executed by four teams from four different cities: Tyumen, Perm, Kazan and Houston, TX. The project is endorsed by the Tyumen Region government; just recently, it was presented to the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev and the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov who praised it highly. The recently established hardware technology park “Navigator Campus” has invested in the project.
