PINZON-BERNAL, Mónica Yamile et al. Virtual Reality Mobile Application For Spastic Hand Training. Case Report. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2021, vol.30, n.3, pp.100-105. ISSN 2631-2581.


The hand is a structure with a complex neuromuscular organization that in hemiparesis is compromised, affecting function.


to determine the changes in the motor function of the spastic hand of an adult with hemiparesis through the use of a mobile application for virtual reality.


case report of a 29-year-old adult with hemiparesis, evaluated with the Fugl Meyer upper extremity assessment (FMA-ES), the Trail Making test and the force dynamometry test. A therapeutic intervention was performed with exercises of the least affected hand for 12 sessions using special glasses for a total immersion 20 minutes using mobile application Mirror box Therapy VR®.


the virtual reality therapy applied through the Mirror Box Therapy VR® mobile application, shows in a short time favorable changes in the motor and sensory hand function of the patient.


virtual reality provides a functional interaction, making it an effective tool to motivate patients during sessions.


An intervention through the use of virtual reality generates changes in the motor and sensory function of the hand of a patient with hemiparesis after 12 work sessions.
