The Virtual Simulation:Kitchen provides a realistic scenario to assess and train everyday skills in clinical populations. Distractions and complex sequences of cooking, cleaning, sorting and similar skills involving attention, executive functions and memory can be simulated.
Clinicians and researchers alike are utilizing the Virtual Simulation:Kitchen for the assessment of attentional and executive function deficits. Assessment scenarios, such as making a cup of tea or preparing a breakfast, have various degrees of difficulty and include real-life distractions to increase relevance. The simulation is available on a variety of platforms including Android, Windows or web browsers. If you are interested in using the Virtual Simulation: Kitchen in your research studies, contact us.
The Virtual Simulation:Kitchen is currently undergoing clinical testing with stroke patients at the University of Queensland, Australia.
