It is often challenging to motivate people
who have had a brain injury to engage in the repetitive exercises
common for rehabilitation. As a result, therapists usually include
games in rehabilitation sessions to help make repetitive
tasks fun and engaging (i.e., to increase motivation to
perform both physical and cognitive rehabilitation exercises).
Therapists use varied combinations of commercial off-the-shelf
games designed for the general public and games that are
specifically designed for brain injury therapy.
