Table 1 Description of the levels of progression and cognitive domains involved

From: Benefits of virtual reality based cognitive rehabilitation through simulated activities of daily living: a randomized controlled trial with stroke patients

Levels of progression Cognitive domains
1 Simple instructions (e.g. “Go to the supermarket and buy two bottles of water”) with mini-map, arrow and list of tasks cues Visuo-spatial orientation and attention
2 Simple instructions (e.g. “Go to the Pharmacy and buy one cream”) without cues Visuo-spatial orientation, attention and memory
3 Complex instructions (e.g. “Go to the Post-office buy two stamps and pick up three packages”) with mini-map, arrow and list of tasks cues Visuo-spatial orientation, attention and executive functions (reasoning and planning)
4 Complex instructions (e.g. “Go to the supermarket and buy one orange juice, two boxes of cereals and four breads”) without cues Visuo-spatial orientation, attention, memory and executive functions (reasoning and planning)
5 Problem resolution instructions (e.g. “Pay the electricity bill”) with mini-map, arrow and list of tasks cues Visuo-spatial orientation, attention and executive functions (problem resolution, reasoning and planning)
6 Problem resolution instructions (e.g. “Get some food for breakfast”) without cues Visuo-spatial orientation, attention, memory and executive functions (problem resolution, reasoning and planning)
