This study applies real-time visual feedback game to increase the rehabilitation intention of patients, which allows patients to perform related upper limb training movements during game. 6-axis-accelerometer/gyroscope is used as wearable device and submits values to a tablet computer through Bluetooth. In this system, patients wear the device on hand. The system is combined with hand rehabilitation training game APP to make patients practice wrist range of motion, wrist stretch and forearm pronation and supination during rehabilitation. This system can not only improve hand agility but also increase connection with life.
