Daniela worked as a physical therapist in Costa Rica for five years. Her clinical practice was mainly focused on rehabilitation for children with disabilities. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Rehabilitation Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. Daniela’s project explores how interactive computer play (ICP) technologies, like video games, can be implemented for home rehabilitation for children with cerebral palsy. She is especially interested in finding successful ways in which these ICP technologies can be used as an alternative motor therapy for children with cerebral palsy living in rural communities and developing countries, where access to rehabilitation services can be limited.
