Open Rehabilitation Initiative: Usability and Knowledge Translation (Rutgers – Collaborative International Research Grants)


The ORI is an international independent initiative that connects and supports clinicians,

scientists, engineers, game developers and end-users to interact with and share virtual

rehabilitation tools. As such, we aim to attract both developers and virtual rehabilitation

users, for research as well as for clinical practice. The scope of the simulations

encompasses sensorimotor and cognitive rehabilitation.

The ORI portal is planned as a hub where the community who build and use software

tools for virtual rehabilitation can easily communicate, interact with and share these

The ORI portal currently offers software, drivers, and documentation of evidence

and application, with support for discussion boards, and blogs. Although ORI originates

from academic institutions, it is designed to grow through community driven content,

incorporating inputs from all the relevant communities.
