This paper presents the “just Physio kidding” approach, which intends
to improve the engaging qualities of therapy programmes towards children with
special needs, mainly with cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy, or
developmental delay. Therefore, “just Physio kidding” intends to address both
physiotherapy and cognitive stimulation therapy. The system is functioning as a
complement to the work of therapists, with and without their live supervision. It
is part of a project with the aim of developing software based on the concept of
personalized serious games for rehabilitation. The paper presents the concept and
the prototype behind “just Physio kidding”.
