In this paper, we introduce an interdisciplinary project, involving researchers from the fields of Physical Therapy, Computer Science, Psychology, Communication and Cell Neurobiology, to develop an integrated virtual reality, haptics and modern sensing technique system for post-stroke rehabilitation. The methodology to develop the system includes identification of movement pattern, development of simulated task and diagnostics. Each part of the methodology can be achieved through several

The system is implemented through stereoscopic displays, force feedback devices and modern sensing techniques that have game-like features and can capture accurate data for further analysis. Diagnostics and evaluation can be made through an Artificial Intelligence based model using collected data and clinical tests have been conducted.
