MOVERThe Office of Naval Research has kicked off the development of a software system intended to help traumatic brain injuries patients maintain their therapy regimens.

ONR said Wednesday the Mobile, Virtual Enhancements for Rehabilitation works to draw a virtual skeleton on a computer or television screen to mirror the patient’s movements through the therapies.
