Funksjon i over ekstremitetene

I kategorien funksjon i over ekstremitetene er det funnet 32 studier, hvor av 13 randomiserte kontrollerte studier, 5 ikke randomiserte kontrollerte studier, 6 studier med pre-post design, 3 casestudier og 5 med andre design. Samlet antall deltakere er 603 fordelt på 7 ulike diagnosegrupper.

Resultatene i disse studiene støtter opp om hypotesen om at å benytte kommersielle dataspill som metode for å trene funksjon i over ekstremitetene gir like god eller bedre effekt som tradisjonell terapi.

  • Sammenlignet med ingen terapi gir det signifikant bedre effekt.
  • Sammenlignet med tradisjonell ergo-/fysioterapi gir det like god eller bedre effekt på funksjonalitet.
  • Sammenlignet med tradisjonell ergo-/fysioterapi gir det signifikant bedre effekt på grepsstyrke.

Det sees at det er gjennomførbart og trygt å benytte kommersielle dataspill som metode for egentrening i hjemmet.

Deltakere utfører flere repetisjoner ved bruk av kommersielle dataspill enn i tradisjonell ergo-/fysioterapi.

Det sees at å benytte kommersielle dataspill har best effekt som et tillegg til tradisjonell terapi eller som et alternativ til ingen terapi.
