Abstract
Objective: To assess the efficacy of Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) based “motion capture/Augmented Reality (AR)” Rehabilitation using Nintendo Wii with conventional physiotherapy for the upper limb post stroke in terms of the upper extremity modalities of Barthel Index.
Methodology: This randomized controlled trial was conducted at the Physiotherapy department, Holy Family Hospital, Rawalpindi from March 2015 to March 2016. 40 stroke patients were recruited and were divided into “study” and “control” groups. Stroke type and hemisphere involved, time since stroke, handedness and blood pressure as well as scores of Barthel index of both the groups were recorded. The control group received conventional physiotherapy and the study group engaged in CIMT augmented by Nintendo Wii based Augmented Reality Rehabilitation for the upper extremity. Four sessions per week for four weeks were given and the above parameters were recorded post-intervention.
Results: Both the control and study groups showed marked improvement in all parameters post-intervention. The difference of the average scores of Barthel Index amongst the control and study groups was highly significant (p<0.001).
Conclusion: CIMT based Augmented Reality Rehabilitation employing Nintendo Wii is an effective means of rehabilitation for upper extremity motor function improvement in addition to Activities of Daily Living parameters in stroke patients.

Key words: Stroke, augmented reality rehabilitation, constraint induced movement therapy.
