This volume 3, number 2 gathers a set of articles based on the most outstanding research on accessibility and disability issues that was presented in the International Conference on NeuroRehabilitation 2012 (ICNR). The articles’ research present in this number is centred on the analysis and/or rehabilitation of body impairment most due to brain injury and neurological disorders. JACCES thanks the collaboration of the ICNR members and the research authors and reviewers that have collaborated in making possible that issue.

    The aging population and limited healthcare capacities call for a change in how rehabilitation care is provided. There is a need to provide more autonomous and scalable care that can be more easily transferred out of the ...
  • The effects of Nintendo Wii on the postural control of patients affected by acquiered brain injury: a pilot study 

    Vicario Méndez, Ana (Càtedra d'Accessibilitat (CATAC), 2013-11)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Abstract: Scientific literature demonstrates that postural control after suffering a brain injury can actually relate to its functional prognosis. Postural control is a result of complex interactions of different body ...
