Abstract

This paper presents the results from a user workshop that was undertaken to investigate the relationship between the nature of current home rehabilitation tools and the motivation to exercise. We also present a method of visual feedback which we hope will be an effective tool for informing users regarding important clinical measures associated with their recovery. Older adults over the age of 60 were involved in the study. The findings from the user workshop suggest that the relatively passive nature of current rehabilitation materials is less than ideal for sustaining motivation to exercise. Furthermore, our results suggest that visual feedback and more interactive methods can play an important role in engaging users in home rehabilitation.
