MEDICAL: Development of Immersive Training Environments for Myoelectric Prosthetics Project

ÖzU VR Lab puts efforts to contribute to upper limb  myoelectric prosthesis training. Since conventional training  methods for prosthetics fall short and need improvement  for amputees, modifying conventional training methods  towards Immersive Virtual Reality environments will help  produce better results concerning prosthetics adoption.  Moreover, adding the element of gamification can improve  patient motivation and learning outcomes. Considering  these facts, it is necessary to study if upper limb prosthesis  training can be improved through gamified immersive virtual  reality and how such an environment should be formed.
