Experimental: Neglect Exergames
Exergames for rehabilitation of hemineglected stroke patients played with a haptic device on a computer. 5 sessions per week, 30-45 minutes per training for 3 weeks, with an intensity individually adjusted by the treating therapist according to the progress of the participating patient.
Other: Neglect Exergames
Exergames for rehabilitation of hemineglected stroke patients played with a haptic device on a computer. The intervention duration is three weeks. During this week the patients play daily a half hour on workdays. The treatening therapist will adjust the intensity according to the progress of the patient.
- Feasibility of exergames as measured by training diary. [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]During the intervention (3 weeks).
- Usability of exergames as measured by questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 7-8 weeks ]Questionnaire: After termination of the intervention (3 weeks)
- Understanding the experience of living with visuospatial neglect as measured by interviews. [ Time Frame: 7-8 weeks ]Interview: 4 weeks after termination of the intervention (3 weeks) during follow-up.
- Collecting preliminary data for efficacy as measured by the ZüMAX, the NET and the Eye Tribe Tracker. [ Time Frame: 7-8 weeks ]Pre-, post- and 4 weeks after training intervention (3 weeks).
