Dr. Flynn will discuss her entrepreneurial journey to get Evidence-Based Rehab Video Games Into the Hands of Users, at the upcoming 2012 SharpBrains Virtual Summit (June 7-14th, 2012).

Dr. Sheryl Flynn is the founder and CEO of Blue Mar­ble Game Co, a seri­ous games com­pany that focuses design and devel­op­ment of video games to enhance reha­bil­i­ta­tion for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties world­wide. Sheryl has also begun the devel­op­ment of the social net­work that aims to bring together indi­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties, clin­i­cians, researchers and game indus­try pro­fes­sion­als to engage all inte­gral par­ties and push the bound­aries of games for reha­bil­i­ta­tion. In addi­tion to her entre­pre­neur­ial pur­suits, Dr. Flynn also con­sults with the Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, Insti­tute for Cre­ative Tech­nolo­gies and Divi­sion of Bioki­ne­si­ol­ogy and Phys­i­cal Ther­apy on the NIDRR funded OPTT-RERC grant to develop a suite of games that clin­i­cians can use in reha­bil­i­ta­tion set­tings. In addi­tion Sheryl also men­tors stu­dents from many uni­ver­si­ties nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally. As a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Phys­i­cal Ther­apy Asso­ci­a­tion, Sheryl has offered her exper­tise in using games for reha­bil­i­ta­tion at local, state and national con­fer­ences.
