Whether virtual rehabilitation is beneficial has not been determined.
To investigate the psychological benefits of virtual reality in rehabilitation.
An experimental group underwent therapy with a virtual-reality-based exercise bike, and a control group underwent the therapy without virtual-reality equipment.
30 patients suffering from spinal-cord injury.
A designed rehabilitation therapy.
Main Outcome Measures:
Endurance, Borg's rating-of-perceived-exertion scale, the Activation–Deactivation Adjective Check List (AD-ACL), and the Simulator Sickness Questionnaire.
The differences between the experimental and control groups were significant for AD-ACL calmness and tension.
A virtual-reality-based rehabilitation program can ease patients' tension and induce calm.

Teaching a graduate level sport finance class can be quite complex. With a variety of concepts such as pricing, budgeting, and public funding, to convey in a limited amount of time, new forms of pedagogy are necessary to assist instructors as this technologically-advanced generation enters into academia. Subsequently, technology has been created to apply basic concepts related to finance to the complexity of a professional sports organization. One such program is the Oakland A’s Baseball Business Simulator. Through interviews and “emotional recall” (Ellis, 2004), this evaluative case study seeks to determine the effectiveness of this technology within this environment.

By removing the affect between the rider and the horse, the physical changes (e.g., balance, posture) that occur with habitual horseback riding may be more readily quantified during SHBR. A horseback riding simulator is a novel device that can accurately represent

We made this hypothesis based on the underlying neuroscientific explanations presented earlier that the IVI and KIN combination should provide a richer cognitive representation (or functional equivalence; Jeannerod, 1994 , 2001 ) and be
