Abstract

Successful prosthesis use is largely dependent on providing patients with high-quality, individualized pre-prosthetic training, ideally completed under the supervision of a trained therapist. Computer-based training systems, or 'virtual coaches,' designed to augment rehabilitation training protocols are an emerging area of research and could be a convenient and low-cost alternative to supplement the therapy received by the patient. In this contribution we completed an iterative needs focus group to determine important design elements required for an effective virtual coach software package.
