    ABSTRACT

    http://dx.doi.org/10.14236/ewic/HCI2017.75

    Motor relearning after stroke is a lengthy process which should be continued after patients get discharged from the clinic. This project aims at developing a system for telerehabilitation which enables stroke patients to exercise at home autonomously or under remote supervision of a therapist. The system includes haptic therapy devices which are more promising and beneficial for stroke rehabilitation than non-haptic approaches. In this paper, we present the results of two initial studies investigating specific design solutions for the task’s and feedback’s visualization. In the first study, we followed a participatory design approach to create a set of design solutions for a motivating instant visual feedback for exercising with the haptic devices. In the second study we evaluated the developed visualizations with stroke patients in clinical environment. The current project status and next steps are described.
