Abstract

The aim of this project is the development of a digital, visual perceptual learning system (D-VPL) with gesture recognition and telemedical link to ophthalmologists for visually impaired elderly people, dementia prevention, and patients with traumatic brain injury. The users will react by using gestures to moving objects that will be presented in virtual reality or on a 3-D display. The combination of D-VPL and gesture control leads to a dual task training, and the telemedical link enables applications in medical institutions, senior residences, and rehabilitation facilities.
