This paper proposes a post-stroke rehabilitation system for hemiparetic-arm based on the application of accelerometer. The study focuses on designing, developing and simulating the results. The result is recordable and stored for post-processing and progressive status tracking. The subject needs to wear a set of sensors over the wrist while performing a few basics arm movement. Nevertheless, the sensor may also be worn to other body parts. In order to achieve the goal, the use accelerometer for rehabilitation is introduced. The data will be carried out to a computer where it will be converted into series of readable data The experiment demonstrates the capabilities of the sensors to produce extended information regarding arm movement activities. It is believed that the system offers more information than conventional method and also the ability to improve training quality, results and patients progress. For initial proof of concept, the system will be tested to a healthy normal subject.
