This paper presents a health economic system for motor recovery in patients with the commonest cause of death in some countries, stroke. The system is based on immersive, real-time motion capture (MOCA) available for private use and at the bedside. An interactive virtual reality (VR) interface designed with auditory and visual feedback. It consists on two scenarios and a 3D character that follows the user’s arm movements by using the first and third person view metaphors of interaction. Two easy and enjoyable games are proposed for each scenario. The system is designed to be adapted to several tasks with different index of difficulty (ID) for gradual motor recovery in patients with stroke. The experiments carried out on eight healthy neurologically interact volunteers have shown that our system is suitable to be used at home on training programs, giving good references for future applications on stroke arm recovery. © 2013 IEEE.
