MiRAR- Mixed Reality in Aphasia Rehabilitation: Concept and Development

EasyChair Preprint no. 6584

3 pagesDate: September 13, 2021


Aphasia, an impaired ability to use language for communication after a head injury, is a major impediment to the quality of life (QOL) of the affected individuals. With the aid of mixed reality (MR: augmented + virtual realties (i.e., AR + VR)), we present the concept, development, and deployment of a social communicative approach to aphasia rehabilitation in a controlled manner, to facilitate communicative participation of PWA.

In this report, we demonstrate our concept, work-flow, and development of communication therapy for PWA using immersive technology (Mixed reality). The application consists of a monitoring admin panel (SLP admin panel as a Web-Page application) and Mixed reality application (for the clients with aphasia). The SLP will be able to guide the PWA who is undergoing the therapy with MR Glass.

We have developed twenty communicative scenarios based on social, cultural, and dialectic (standard) variations of Indian languages (Indian English, Kannada, Hindi, & Malayalam).

Keyphrases: Aphasia rehabilitation, Augmented Reality, Immersive therapy, Indian context, Mixed Reality, Virtual Reality
