Before being able to access the therapy manual and instructions, you need to read the following information sheet and then provide informed consent by clicking on the boxes at the bottom of the page. By doing this, you are agreeing to be part of our database of people who are using our visuomotor feedback training materials and to be contacted by the research team for feedback. University of East Anglia and SIGHT researchers are collecting this information, as we are interested in tracking who is using this website, the therapy and getting some feedback about them. You will need to have access to the internet to access all the files after you have registered.

Title of project:

Online database for users of visuomotor feedback training materials for rehabilitation of spatial neglect

We would like to invite you to be part of our database of people using our free visuomotor feedback training materials for rehabilitation of spatial neglect. You should only participate if you want to. Before you decide whether you want to take part, it is important for you to read the following information carefully and discuss it with others if you wish. Please ask us if there is anything that is not clear or you would like more information (contact us on:

Project background:

A brain injury can affect the way the brain understands, organises and stores information about the world around us. After a brain injury, people may have problems noticing things on one side of their world, usually the side where they have lost their movement (the affected side). The name of this condition is spatial neglect or inattention.

Visuomotor feedback training is a new behavioural therapy designed to improve the patient’s attention to the affected side of space. It involves a simple, portable and inexpensive training of grasping-to-lift wooden rods at the centre with the spared arm. In a recent study, the research team found that visuomotor feedback training seems to be more effective at reducing spatial neglect than conventional therapy. In particular, patients who received this training were more accurate when finding objects on their affected side and their improvements remained for at least 4-months after the training had ended.

SIGHT is an online database, which allows users to access downloadable materials to set-up and deliver or self-administer visuomotor feedback training to patients with spatial neglect caused by brain injury. It was created so that patients, their carers, clinicians or researchers can access therapy for spatial neglect so that the research team could efficiently track the usage of visuomotor feedback training. Feedback from users will help further development of the therapy.

The online materials can be accessed by any web browser, once the materials are saved the therapy can be performed from anywhere and at any time at the patient’s own pace. SIGHT contains a manual to set-up and run the training including details of the wooden rods (can be bought from any hardware store), a downloadable rehabilitation mat (printable at any printing store) and specific instructions and session details (in writing, video and audio). As well as the therapy, there is also a printable test, which allows you to check the progress during the course of the therapy.

After you consent, the data stored on the database will be strictly confidential. No personal information (such as names) will be shared outside of the research team or published in the final report(s) from this research. Data will only be accessible to the research team for tracking therapy and website usage.

Rehabilitation methodology

We would like to know about your experience with the website, our materials and how visuomotor feedback training is working for you. To do this we may contact you for feedback about the website and about the usage of visuomotor feedback training. We recommend doing the therapy for between 30 minutes to 1 hour a day, although the best thing is to go at your own pace. It is unlikely that practicing the therapy (grasping-to-lift the middle of rods) will do you any harm, but if you find it uncomfortable in any way you should stop immediately. You can always try again later or for a shorter period of time. You will get feedback on how you are doing by doing the test we provide and seeing how your performance changes on this test.
