Abstract

Background: Technology using rehabilitation software may provide an engaging way to increase the amount of exercises that a client performs to address low physical activity levels in rehabilitation and the need for high repetitions of movements or exercises for effective physical rehabilitation. The ability to use motion capture software with individuals who require assistive devices to stand is not known.

Aims: to determine if motion capture software can be feasibly used for physical rehabilitation in stroke clients who required assistance to stand.

Methods: A single case study using Jintronix software for stroke rehabilitation and Kinect motion tracking system for upper and lower limb physical rehabilitation using a pull to stand aid and standby table. The exercise program included 10 exercises 5 for upper limb and 5 for standing balance and leg strength.

Results: One 88 yo stroke survivor (12/52) participated. Clients need to have more than 20 degrees range of motion into flexion or adduction at their shoulder to avoid interference with the frame. Active-assisted upper limb activities are possible in this case. One stepping game is not possible in the standing frame. Weight shift and balance activities can be performed and the tracking system is able to give feedback on performance.

Conclusion/Discussion: Use of motion tracking software to increase total activity time in rehabilitation, increase repetition of movements of both the upper and lower limbs and give feedback on performance are all possible using the Kinect system in clients who are not able to stand independently.
