The 12th International Conference on Disability, Virtual Reality and Associated Technologies (ICDVRAT 2018) is being held at the University of Nottingham on 4-6th September. We are pleased to be representing our partners Motek and Hocoma at the exhibition, and look forward to meeting attendees to share our expertise on how virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and assistive technology can transform the lives of disabled people.

Matthew Whitby from the University of Portsmouth, who completed a six-month internship at Motek, has also submitted a short paper and poster presentation which will be held at the conference. The paper, entitled “The role of social interactions in a multiplayer context for rehabilitation games”, will present an investigation into the effects of creating multiplayer applications which are used in a rehabilitation setting.

At the Summit Medical and Scientific booth, Coen de Weerd (Team Lead Exercise & Interaction at Motek,
Competence Lead Gaming at Rehab Division DIH) will be doing live programming demonstrations in D-Flow using the Hocoma Valedo sensors. Make sure you stop by our stand and say hello!
