Abstract

Upper limb rehabilitation is critical for patients affected by spinal cord injury (SCI). Currently, robotics and Virtual Reality (VR) have changed the way in which rehabilitation therapies are provided. However, a still unreached precondition for these systems is the precise and practical estimation of limb posture and an objective evaluation of patient’s improvement. In this manuscript we present an upper limb rehabilitation platform combining VR, patient posture estimation and objective kinematic indices. This manuscript describes the software platform and criteria which integrate the modules of the system. We report preliminary results of the kinematic indices and platform usability by practitioners.
