This paper introduces a new approach for upper limb neurorehabilitation based on customized devices for monitoring and interacting with virtual environments. A proof-of-concept test involving eight patients at the Guttmann Neurorehabilitation Hospital shows patient’s good acceptance and usability scores and demonstrates the technically feasibility of the devices. The final goal is to achieve a more personalized, monitored, intensive and ecological rehabilitation procedures for ABI patients.
