Assistive Technologies for Brain-Injured Gamers We will see examples of video game therapy for brain-injured people. There are many examples of physical rehabilitation following ABI, using video games to make repetitive motion more enjoyable and less monotonous. In writing this chapter, the authors aim to raise awareness of how video games could provide many forms of therapy for people with an acquired brain injury. Unfortunately, many such people are prevented from playing some video games due to deficits in mobility, vision, and cognition.

Functional MRI (fMRI) detects changes in localised activity, relying on changes in blood oxygen concentration in active areas of the brain (Dubin, 2002). Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) also show brain function (Lindsay & Bone, 2004). Cases have occurred of patients who were misdiagnosed as being in PVS, when they were in fact locked in. Monti and team (2010) describe patients who are outwardly non-aware and noncommunicative, but who can answer questions using MRI scanning.
