Abstract

© 2017 IEEE. Recent studies have shown that adults are more likely to suffer some type of neurodegenerative disease, some of which affect the motor functions of patients, which may improve if the patient performs rehabilitation therapies. However, conventional therapies do not capture interest and do not motivate patients to continue with them. For these reasons this work present a rehabilitation system for upper limb dynamic that stimulate having fun people that have any neurodegenerative disease. Two video games were developed: CrossFunPlane which has two levels of difficulty and the FunnyPlaneGame which has three levels. The tests were done to five participants of the 'Universidad del adulto mayor'. The results showed that the proposed system is a good alternative for the rehabilitation of the upper limbs of healthy people and for those suffering from motor diseases.
