Patients with limited sensorimotor abilities often suffer from balancing problems or to find the correct body position. However, correcting the body posture can prevent serious secondary diseases. Digitization tools offer the potential to achieve better therapeutic outcomes through new training scenarios. In this subproject, the correlation of correction instructions and visualization in virtual reality (VR) will be focused. For this purpose, a technical setup with a sensor concept in VR embedded in a motion capture system will be realized and a measurement and evaluation procedure for different test scenarios will be tested.
