Abstract

This paper preconizes the use of interactive environments as an accessible and inexpensive solution that allows supporting the recovery process of people receiving occupational therapy rehabilitation. A method for designing interactive environments is proposed in order to identify the interaction capabilities. These capabilities should be taken into account when producing interactive environments for users with different levels of ability/disability. In addition, the developed interactive environments offer rehabilitation support to diverse needs of users with physical disabilities. It is possible to capitalize the good practices established in occupational therapy, allowing the generation of useful information for therapists/health experts. Finally, a case study presents the performance of interactive environments for people receiving occupational therapy for hand rehabilitation at DIF, Aguascalientes in Mexico.
