Learn about SCI Hard, a healthcare gaming app developed at the University of Michigan to help adolescents and young adults with spinal cord injury and dysfunction (SCI/D) to apply self-management skills. In this presentation, psychologist Michelle A. Meade, Ph.D., one of the creators of the game, describes its features, why and how it was designed, and the research to evaluate its effectiveness. Video recordings from the game are used to illustrate key components of SCI Hard.
Dr. Meade is a psychologist and associate professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan. Her primary research interests focus around patient self-management, participation and health improvement, and reduction of costs and healthcare disparities for individuals with disabilities.
