In this paper, we propose a novel task-oriented motor function training and assistance of upper limbs system after brain injured such as stroke based on Virtual-Reality. In this system, two kinds of training approaches are developed. One is tracking training with path-unlimited based on a mass-spring-damper force model, and the other is tracking training with path-limited based on a compound force model. Both of training approaches are same that coordination motion of two hands is needed. We

Further, we enhance the effect of system through adding assistance in order to help mild stroke patients to recovery. This system is convenient and compact so that it is suitable for home-based rehabilitation.
