Abstract: Children with cerebral palsy (CP) must undergo long-term physical rehabilitation to enhance neural development. Currently, commercial rehabilitation products cannot be customized and are expensive; consequently, public special-education schools generally cannot afford purchasing these products. This study employs the Microsoft Kinect technology and image recognition technology to create a rehabilitation system applicable for people with CP. By adopting Kinect technology, this system mitigates the inconvenience of wearing sensors. Furthermore, through real-time image processing, the system detects the physical motion trajectories of students to determine whether correct movements are being performed during physical activities.
