Sažetak
With age a probability to suffer a brain stroke increases, in fact it has been shown that the risk of stroke doubles for each decade between the ages of 55 and 85. Regardless of brain stroke origin, an ischemic stroke which occurs 80% of times, or a hemorrhagic stroke, what follows for survivor patients is a long and difficult recovery involving many healthcare professionals with often unpredictable results. It has been shown that the progress of recovery in these patients greatly depends on the time spent with physical and speech therapists that in some healthcare systems, particularly in Croatia, have become a bottleneck in successful treatment of brain stroke patients. Our approach to fixing this problem is applying new technologies that can complement and aid both physical and speech therapists in performing their difficult but important tasks. In 2010 Microsoft has released a Kinect technology, a gaming technology that very quickly spawned a number of serious and noteworthy applications, many of them related to healthcare. A Kinect device can monitor players and check if their movements or vocal answers match expected results, and can relentlessly repeat the same actions as long as players, in this case patients, can perform them. A project named Virtual Therapist, executed together with a Croatian software company, which is developing this product, should result in a system consisting of a server application that can track patients, their progresses and problem areas, and a client application tied to a Kinect device capable of playing out and recording outcomes of exercises defined by a therapist for each patient. Results of Kinect exercise sessions, which could be conducted in specially equipped facilities or in patient’s homes will be available to both therapists and patient’s doctors, to the healthcare management institutions and national or local public healthcare systems.
