Reaching Task is a serious game, developed for upper body mobility rehabilitation. This is an experimental project where the experience of playing the same game in both AR (HoloLens) and in VR (HTC Vive) is compared. The motor demands of the game is measured by a motion capture system. Participants' experiences are documented via surveys. What is initially thought as design challenges for developing an app suitable for both AR and VR, turned out to be a great recipe for a unique prescription for rehabilitation.


Audience will gain an insight for choosing the right platform while developing serious games for AR or VR environments.
