Abstract

© 2013, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. This paper studies the reliability of the Rehabilitation Gaming System (RGS) on the evaluation of motor function in stroke patients. We developed a virtual reality (VR) scenario for motor function assessment and we tested it in 18 stroke patients. We found strong correlations between the parameters obtained from the virtual reality scenario (work area, covered distance, and fingers excursion) and standardized clinical scales for motor function, spasticity, and performance in activities of daily living.
