Using the Xbox 360 Controller to enable Music Supported Therapy for Stroke Patients


I am a music technology consultant who finds ways to enable disabled people to access to music. In this instance I am focusing on the accessible technology that can assist therapists to enable ‘Music Supported Therapy’.

There have been several Research Papers (1) outlining interventions which have significantly improved the motor skills of individuals who have had a Stroke by stimulating brain activity associated with a given function which can then have an impact on other physical locations (neural plasticity).
