Abstract: Background: This work presents Com@Rehab, a patient-centred activity for individuals needing a physical rehabilitation approach and with specific loss of functionality, designed for the context of severe post-covid19 complications. Within this scope, this paper focuses on the description of the activity in virtual reality (VR), its components, the game design approach, and the results of an initial prototype testing in the laboratory aimed at evaluating the experience of the Com@Rehab system. Methods: The VR activity was customised according to patients’ clinical needs while replicating an activity of daily living. A prototype was tested by a group of 33 healthy individuals for a showering activity scenario. A questionnaire was developed within the scope of this project to test the efficiency of the technology that supports the VR activity, as well as to evaluate health literacy components. Results: Preliminary results showed that 94% of the participants recommended the experience, t he performance of the various components of the system was successfully implemented, participants quickly adhered to the VR technology, and the user interface (UI) assistant functionality needs to be improved. Conclusion: The prototype test shows potential effectiveness in enhancing the rehabilitation experience and favourable usability, offering a promising path for advancing rehabilitative care. Further research is needed for validation in clinical settings. In addition, the Com@Rehab Communication Module improves human-human and human-machine communication while contributing to health literacy. (More)
