Children with cerebral palsy (CP) must undergo long-term physical rehabilitation to enhance neural development. Currently, commercial rehabilitation products cannot be customized and are expensive; consequently, public special-education schools generally cannot afford purchasing these products. This study employs the Microsoft Kinect technology and image recognition technology to create a rehabilitation system applicable for people with CP. By leveraging the Scratch language and Kinect2Scratch tool, we gamified the movement training of young adults with CP in special education school settings. Preliminary results of 5 healthy college students testing the exercise games are presented.
