Resonance is an arts-science collaborative research project encompasses the design and development of an interactive digital artwork for rehabilitation of acquired brain injury (ABI). The artwork promotes co-located interaction between participants and explore how group therapy may enhance their motor and cognitive recovery.
We consider how collaborative, cooperative and competitive interactions might be developed for brain injury rehabilitation in a co-located group context using a tabletop display interface. Activities on tabletop displays are generally designed for shared activities. Group orientated rehabilitation may provide participants with a more comprehensive social experience that is visual, tactile, auditory and enriched. The opportunities social activity affords for observational learning and feedback in manipulating shared objects and environments may consequently direct higher levels of attention and focus in users.
