Human motion tracking for rehabilitation has been an active research topic since the 1980s. It has been motivated by the increased number of patients who have suffered a stroke, or some other motor function disability. Rehabilitation is a dynamic process which allows patients to restore their functional capability to normal.

Major achievements in these systems are summarised, and their merits and limitations individually presented. In addition, bottleneck problems in these tracking systems that remain open are highlighted, along with possible solutions. #
