“Northeastern University’s Danielle Levac develops video games to make physical therapy more fun, motivating, and rewarding for patients—especially for children with movement impairments, such as those with cerebral palsy.
Levac, professor of physical therapy in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, invited a group of fifth-grade students from Boston’s Ellis Mendell Elementary School to visit her lab last week.
The young students sat in the Rehabilitation Games and Virtual Reality Laboratory illuminated by floor-to-ceiling screens with virtual worlds on them, and learned about what physical therapists do and how research can benefit their patients.”
