Abstract

We present a novel technology to support playful rehabilitation of arm-hand performance for stroke survivors. The system combines tangible tabletop interaction with wearable technology, to encourage stroke patients to train their arm-hand skills in a task-oriented manner, while a jacket supporting tilt-sensing and vibrotactile feedback guides patients regarding the correct execution of exercises and specifically to avoid compensatory movements. We present the iterative client centered development of this technology and its on going development.
