Abstract
This paper describes a framework focused on being
a health monitoring platform as well as a source of entertainment
for physiotherapy patients, particularly stroke survivors. Using
the Microsoft Kinect sensor a serious game captures 3D data
during the patient’s session and sends it to a server. Through
a web application these data can be further visualized by the
physiotherapists on their assessments. Moreover, this framework
intends to be a useful and effective tool for remote physiotherapy
sessions allowing for a considerable cost reduction. Experimental
