What is GT?
Gesture therapy (GT) is both a rehabilitation concept and a platform for supporting this concept. As a concept, GT is a virtual reality based motor rehabilitation therapy which favours the three pillars of rehabilitation (repetition, feedback and motivation) by challenging the patient to fulfill daily tasks in a safe virtual environment. The tasks are presented in the form of short serious games. As a platform, GT provides the physical and virtual elements to realise the concept.
