Cognitive fatigue is a troubling long-term symptom following traumatic brain injury (TBI), impacting participation and quality of life. A user-design feasibility study was completed, using a sample of clinicians and individuals with lived experience of TBI to design and test a Virtual Reality rehabilitation solution alongside engineers, researchers and designers. This novel and motivating system may provide advantages over traditional TBI rehabilitation approaches.
