Abstract

Virtual Reality combined with medical rehabilitation has become the modern trend. In the clinical therapy, frozen shoulder is a common shoulder disease. They usually use proper rehabilitation exercise to pole adhesive joint capsule. In these long time process, patients usually can't continue. Our research is using virtual reality to combine with motion tracking in order to develop interactive shoulder joint rehabilitation system. We decide to use interactive game-based oriented way and to give real-time visual and auditory feedback to improve user's motivation and willingness of doing rehabilitation. In this way, patients can achieve better result of rehabilitation compared with traditional therapy.
