Summary

In this paper, we present a novel smartphone-based rehabilitation approach called ARMStrokes that provides real-time support for stroke survivors to complete rehabilitation exercises for upper extremity recovery. ARMStrokes allows stroke survivors to exercise through interactive games anytime and anywhere and receive instant feedback about the quality of their performance. Stroke survivors can also communicate with their therapists or physicians through the supporting web-based platform. Focus groups involving stroke survivors, caregivers, and therapists have been conducted to evaluate the system and the feedback is highly positive.
