Games for people with Parkinson’s Disease

Red Hill Studios and the School of Nursing at the University of California San Francisco produced a suite of nine therapeutic videogames specifically designed to help people with Parkinson’s Disease improve their balance. Over a 13-week study, patients tripled their number of ‘game movements’ by gradually increasing the difficulty of the games. .

Red Hill developed a custom inertial tracking sensor because the Nintendo Wii wasn’t accurate enough. We have since migrated the games over to the Kinect platform. We’re seeking funding to complete the Kinect version.
