We are evaluating the feasibility and efficacy of using a computer game based rehabilitation protocol for stroke patients with upper limb impairments. We aim to focus on the functional abilities of the patients despite their anatomical limitations. To make therapy more engaging, focused and measurable quantitatively the platform we have developed will be useful and will also allow manipulation of various objects used for activities of daily living by the impaired upper extremity. This would make therapy functionally oriented and early independence of patients.
