This project is the development of VR games targeted toward children with muscular dystrophy in the 8 to 12-year-old age range. They have a range of movement capabilities but all gameplay is to be seated and have periods of rest built-in. The goal is to encourage the children to participate in clinical recovery training through gameplay interactions instead of direct instructions.
