In this thesis, quantitative evaluation of quality of movement during stroke rehabilitation will be discussed. Previous research on stroke rehabilitation in hospital has been shown to be effective. In this thesis, we study various issues that arise when creating a home-based system that can be deployed in a patient's home. Limitation of motion capture due to reduced number of sensors leads to problems with design of kinematic features for quantitative evaluation. Also, the hierarchical three-level tasks of rehabilitation requires new design of kinematic features.
