English abstract:
Stroke is a significant cause of disability, and is
predicted to become a greater burden as population
demographics shift. Research suggests that the
completion of rehabilitation exercises can considerably
improve function in damaged limbs, yet these exercises
can be both boring and frustrating for patients to
complete at home. New technologies create possibilities
to support rehabilitation in motivating and entertaining
ways, and, in this paper, we present a case study that
illustrates the work of designing such technologies for a
single user. Participation in this case study has
highlighted some interesting tensions between
designing for rehabilitation and designing for the user.
