Abstract

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a hereditary recessive genetic disorder characterized by loss of progressive muscle strength, which causes limitations in activities and restrictions on participation. Due to the increased use of Virtual Reality (VR) to improve motor function, knowledge from research comparing performance improvement in virtual environments and the possible transfer to real environments may help in the organization of therapeutic programs that improve functional independence of people with DMD. Thus, main objective of this research is to verify if more abstract interaction devices (without physical contact - more virtual) allow performance improvement in the task, when compared with more concrete devices (with physical contact). We will verify if the practice of a task in abstract environment allows transfer of performance when performing similar task in concrete environment and vice versa. So, 120 male patients, aged between 11 and 29 years, 60 - experimental group (EG) with DMD and 60 - typical development (control group -CG), matched by sex and age with the EG. Two tasks will be used: (I) Matching Timing and (II) Reaching bubbles, with the objective of evaluating if tasks with physical contact promote better performance for people with DMD and also if there is a transference of performance between the environments. The results of this research will aid in the development of rehabilitation programs using assistive technological, not only as a facilitator of task execution, but also as an instrument that enables functional improvements to the real day to day tasks for people with DMD.
