Abstract
One key concept of Tangible User Interaction is interactive surfaces, in which we transform a surface into an active interface between the physical and virtual world. In this paper we describe the design process of a novel interactive surface that can be used for movement therapy for children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Children with DCD suffer from impairment in motor development which influences their overall movement quality and affects their daily life. Traditionally, the rehabilitation techniques and tools are often static, non-interactive, monotonous and unappealing to children. The purpose of this study is to design an interactive surface that combines physical motor exercises with digital games. Through an iterative co-creation process with patients and physiotherapists, we developed "Matti" as an interactive gaming mat to increase the motivation of the children during their rehabilitation, by linking the therapy exercises with digital games thus providing more engagement and better results.
