This paper proposes a post-stroke rehabilitatr'on system fog hemiparetic-am based on the application of both gyro and accelerometer sensor. The study focuses on designing, developing and simulating the results. m e result is documented for the purpose of post-processing and progressive status tracking.

It is believed that thesystem offers more information than conventional method and also the ability to improve training quality, results and patients progress. For initial proof of concept, the system will be tested to a healthy normal subject lndex Terns-Post-stroke, hemiparetic-arm, rehabilitation, accelerometer, gyro, monitoring. with ours. However, it is not comfortable to wear since too many sensor to hook up and a tedious to wear.
