Virtual rehabilitation is concerned with exploiting virtual environments in the form of serious games to assisst in motor rehabilitation therapies. Virtual environments can help rehabilitation in many ways including but are not limited to, providing a motivating experience, favouring online monitoring and progress and reducing therapy associated costs. During the last few years, Prof. Sucar's team has been developing Gesture Therapy, a virtual rehablitation platform for the upper limb originally developed for stroke patients.
