We are in the late development phase of a virtual kitchen for our brain injury 
clients here.  While it won't be used so much for actual physical re-training, 
it will work on placement of self within the environment, safety issues, etc.  
Our main focus is the cognitive re-training necessary for the 
development of independent ADL skills.  We should have a model ready in about 
a month.
