|dc.description.abstract||This study is divided for two principal themes mainly, one is applying data glove with the emerging technology of Virtual Reality for spinal cord injury(SCI) patients to rehabilitation practice, collocate the software of the training program, with a series of reach of hands and slope movement of trunk to help SCI patients exercise, on one hand, this system can offer rehabilitation exercise to inpatients, on the other hand, this training software can be taken home for self practice with par data glove hardware. The second theme is the development of the simulation system of power wheelchair; the system combined Virtual Reality, gradient platform, control program and training course software, etc. Moreover, the stuff of this system as the commercial hardware was to form the simulation training system of power wheelchair. The goal of the system assisted user who never use power wheelchair in increasing their ability of controlling power wheelchair under the safe, completed and systematical situation.
According to the data of the experiment, the hand rehabilitation course and power wheelchair simulation system developed in this study had the conspicuous increasing in the aspect of learning effect and representation. At the same time, by comparing the experimental data of simulation system with data on road test, the difference between these two data was very tiny. In other words, the degree of reality for power wheelchair simulation system was so close to the real power wheelchair, and the system had enough ability to provide safe and effective learning environment for the user who used power wheelchair as first time.||en_US|
