Abstract

An augmented auditory feedback device is described. The device can be easily and economically constructed and implemented during a patient's physical rehabilitation. The rationale is to provide an external source of information to the user in order to correct errors during weight-bearing activities. Possible applications of the augmented auditory feedback device include increasing symmetry and weight distribution during sitting, standing, and gait. Instructions regarding its construction are provided, and a case study using the device is presented. Improved midline alignment and weight distribution in sitting for a 2-hour duration was achieved by a stroke patient using the augmented auditory feedback device in conjunction with physical therapy.
