Abstract

The use of breathing exercises post surgery can reduce pulmonary complications. Incentive spirometry is a widely used device that provides visual feedback for patients during breathing exercises. This paper describes the initial development of an interaction device, game design and initial playtesting and usability of a game to motivate patients to perform post operative breathing exercises.
