The purpose of this study is to establish the contents of virtual reality for a patient who suffers from various diseases and needs Upper-limbs Rehabilitation. First, the system provides the movement content to remote patient. Then system is tracking information in the joints by using Kinect Sensor. And similarity comparison of a given content to diagnose the movement of the patient. The tracked movement information is stored in the database with similarity and is delivered to the rehabilitation therapist. The result of this study will enhance the effectiveness and concentration of the rehabilitation therapy and be used as basic data evaluating the function of the Upper-limbs Rehabilitation.
