This paper presents a complete Virtual Reality (VR) system used for upper extremity rehabilitation. The system consists of sensors, the computer application and stereoscopic display glasses. The system is designed to cooperate with special mechanical orthosis used for arm rehabilitation. Patients can see their movements in the 3D virtual space during exercises. The system has a key role in development of rehabilitation robot, because numerous researches show that exercises in VR decreases the… CONTINUE READING
