Abstract: Traditional physical therapeutic sessions for stroke inflicted patients include- mobilisation, strengthening and stretching exercises of the affected limb. These methods proved to be advantageous in regaining lost strength, but seemed to be boring and less engaging. Virtual Reality techniques of rehabilitation are involving and excite patient’s interest to participate. This research is based on improving upper extremity functions of left or right hemiplegic patients using Virtual Reality based therapy modules. The system was tried upon 5 stroke patients who were regular visitors in the occupational therapy department of the hospital, between age group: 25–50 years whose upper limb motion was restricted. After practicing on a regular basis, the subjects attained easy arm movement and reduced shoulder flexion.
