Hi Group,

As you all know, we need to find new innovative ways to provide excellent rehabilitation care while also considering cost. Like many of you, we believe video games might help! But building these games in a vacuum will not do anyone any good. We are looking to interview/focus groups with clinicians (all kinds),
individuals undergoing rehab/or who have completed rehab (people with disabilities),
friend/family/caregivers of people with disabilities.

We are currently working on a few projects and would like to interact with
you regarding your needs etc for a video game. Below is our IRB approved
webposting for this research. If you live in the Southern California area
and would like to participate, please let us know.

Blue Marble Rehab Inc is a video game design/development/research studio
that makes and tests video games for use in the rehabilitation space.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and help!

IRB Study # A-16123i

Cognitive Motor Therapy Applications Using Video Game Platform

PI: Sheryl Flynn PT, PhD

Description: The purpose of this research study is to learn more about how
to design and develop video games for rehabilitation. The reason for
collecting this information is to find ways to improve rehabilitation
outcomes for specific groups of patients and their families. Information
from focus groups (small group discussions about games), usability trials of
games, and product testing will be used to develop better video games that
can be used for rehabilitation purposes. Approximately 300 participants will
be enrolled in this project.

disability who are undergoing rehabilitation, 2) people with disability who
have received rehabilitation in the past, 3) rehabilitation specialists
(PTs, OTs, Speech, Psych, Physicians) and 4) family/caregivers, friends
of people with disabilities

The discussion in the focus group will be in English

Time Commitment: approximately 2 hours

Compensation: Each participant will receive $50.00 for their participation
