Touch the Stars
Promoted exercises: Motor function: This protocol is designed to promote the extension of the elbow and flexion/adduction of the shoulder, working against gravity while requiring the precision of movement. Only one arm is used, that has to be selected at the beginning of the session. Cognitive function: Working memory and attention. This protocol can be played while standing up or sitting down on a chair a few meters away from the table.
Description of the activity: A series of blue spheres joined by lines that represent a real constellation of stars appears on the screen. When a constellation is presented, some of its stars are lit up in a temporal sequence with a specific order. The user must touch the stars in that same order to complete each exercise. When finished, the sequence is displayed again and the next constellation is loaded.
