Evaluating a 3D camera for use in movement tracking video games for rehabilitation therapies


We are investigating the accuracy of a new, low-cost 3D camera for use in movement tracking video games to make therapies more fun for kids.

Potential Benefits?

Your participation will help us to understand if video games and low-cost 3D cameras can be used at home to track changes in children’s movement skills and development.

Call to action

Do you like video games? Consider participating in a research study to test out movement-tracking video games to make therapy more fun for kids.

Who can participate

We are looking for children who:

  • are 5 years and older
  • have sufficient movement abilities to successfully play the movement-tracking video game (i.e., able to lift hand above shoulder)
  • are able to communicate in English
  • are able to see and interact with a TV screen (i.e., minimal visual or auditory impairments)
  • are comfortable wearing tight fitting clothing
  • are comfortable wearing athletic tape around the arms and legs to secure loose clothing
  • are comfortable wearing light-weight reflective stickers on their body joints during the assessment
  • are typically developing OR diagnosed with cerebral palsy (GMFCS level I-III) 

Funding agency

  1. NSERC Discovery Grant (#491004)
  2. Canadian Institutes of Health Research CIHR (FRN: 169067)

What's involved

In this study, you will be asked to attend a single play session for approximately 1.5 hours at Holland Bloorview. You will play movement-tracking video games while wearing reflective stickers on your body. We will record your movements with the low-cost 3D camera and a very accurate and expensive motion capture system. We will ask you a few questions about the video games and what you liked/disliked about them.

Interested in participating

If you are interested in participating in this study or have additional questions, please contact Soowan Choi at or (416)-425-6220 ext. 3059.
