Virtual Reality Applied Dr. Thomas Schueler / Software Developer and Researcher


Contribution to ISPR 2014

Our paper "Telepresence and motor rehabilitation in an abstract virtual environment for stroke patients" was accepted for the Presence conference 2014 organised by the ISPR. I wrote the paper together with Sonja Drehlmann, Friederike Kane and Harry von Piekartz. We introduce the AVUS system, which was developed explicitly drawing on telepresence research, and describe our pilotstudy and prospective results.

On 8.11.2013 the "7. Tag der Gesundheitswirtschaft" took place at the airport Münster/Osnabrück. The topic of this year's meeting was "Telemedizin im ländlichen Raum/Telemedicine in rural areas". The meeting was organised by Gewinet.

Alongside the exhibition I was given the oppotunity to demonstrate the AVUS system to clinical researchers, practitioners and representatives of the public health system.
