Abstract Limited physical activity, poor balance, and impaired mobility are commonly observed in those with chronic stroke. Telerehabilitation can be employed to guarantee uninterrupted rehabilitation from hospital to community for individuals with stroke. In the current study, a telerehabilitation system was developed using Kinect-based exergaming system through which medical staff could monitor and guide the rehabilitation processes of individuals with chronic stroke. In addition, the results suggested that this telerehabilitation system using target-oriented programs had either higher or equal efficacy compared with conventional face-to-face physiotherapy for individuals with chronic stroke.
