Manual adaptability is a major requirement and challenge in the physiotherapeutic use of motion-based games for health. For adaptation tool development, tablets are a promising platform due to their similarity in affordance compared to traditional clipboards. Our pre-study emphasized the importance of configuring joint angles along three axes. In a comparative study, we examined three different input modalities on the tablet that allow for configuring joint angles: direct-touch, classic interface components (WIMP) and a combination of both. While direct touch emerged as the least preferable modality, results highlight the benefits of the combination of direct-touch and classic interface components as the most accessible modality for configuring joint angle ranges. Furthermore, the interesting use-case of configuration tools as communication support emerged.
