Trafford hospital using video-games to improve physiotherapy

A team at Trafford Hospital have created the Virtual Physiotherapy (ViP) project to help patients exercise and track their recovery at home.
The games were introduced at Trafford Hospital following successful clinical research supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN).

The research was led by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Bibhas Roy.

The system was tested with a multicentre randomised control trial, involving multiple hospitals in the North West. Study results showed that the games were equally as effective as standard post-operative physiotherapy and they also helped patients feel more motivated.
