Acquired non-degenerative brain lesions in adults induce multiple disorders sensory-motor, cognitive and psycho-social spheres, leading to a loss of autonomy of autonomy in the realization of the activities of daily life. The continuation of the rehabilitation in supervised autonomy during the chronic phase is encouraged.
The emergence of interactive tools for the sonification of movement, which provide real-time continuous sound information information in real time is a promising avenue.
Questions related to the orientation of design choices (characteristics of sound feedback and modalities of gesture-sound interactions) are currently at the heart of the reflections. The main objective of this interdisciplinary thesis, health-arts-sciences, was to develop a device of sonification of the movement for the rehabilitation in autonomy of patients with motor sequelae after an acquired brain injury.
The first objective was to evaluate the effect of different types of sound feedback on two gestural tasks. The second objective was to define the design criteria of the device that would meet the specific needs of the targeted use. The third objective was to initiate an evaluation of the designed device. The work carried out allowed to confirm the effect of the of interactive sound feedback during the execution of gestures and the importance of taking into consideration the importance of taking into consideration the modalities of gesture-sound interaction. The user-centered co-design process process led to the creation of a functional and flexible motion sonification device functional and flexible device, appreciated by therapists.
