Abstract

The diagnosis of Visuospatial neglect is generally conducted using paper based manual methods. The obtained results could be confused with sensory inattention pathology. In this paper we are presenting a new Virtual Reality based diagnosis method for patients suffering from Visuospatial neglect. For this purpose a Virtual Reality simulation called Farm Parade has been developed where the patient, after wearing a Virtual Reality headset, will be guided inside a road crossing a farm like environment where animals at both sides of the road will slowly move and generate sounds to encourage patients to look at them. The patient head motion will be then tracked to generate a graph showing his capacity to move his head and judge if he is suffering from Visuospatial neglect. The strength of the proposed system is the generation of numerical values relative to the amount of head’s rotation which could be helpful for measuring precisely the degree of recovery.
