If your patients have trouble calculating distances, this is their game. "The Neighbor's Garden" is a spatial relation game for adults.
This cognitive rehabilitation exercise consists of the patients having to create an exact copy of a vegetable garden. This requires clicking on the same exact spot that the vegetables appear on the example.
When the patient increases his/her level, he/she will have fewer reference lines and smaller vegetables, which will complicate the exercise.
Spatial relation is the main cognitive function that this game for adults works.
NeuronUP offers occupational therapists the possibility to customize the game for each patient according to their abilities. The aspects of the game the professional can personalize are:
The occupational therapist can also customize: the number of exercises to finish (total worked, passed, acceptable or failed), time limit, inclusion of an inactivity warning and whether to show an activity timer.
In addition, if the patient is left-handed, the professional can select that the model garden appears on the right side, instead of on the left side that appears by default. With this change the southpaw patient will not cover the sample area with his/her arm when working with tablets or touch screens.
This neurorehabilitation activity for adults also has a version for children called "The Mysterious Garden". In this case, the children will have to fill their own garden with animals and flowers by clicking on exactly the same place they show up in the example area.
