These exercises are implemented based on well established and common exercises, namely the Jebsen Test of Hand Function (JTHF) and the Box and Block Test (BBT), which are used in traditional rehabilitation mechanism. The system captures different behavioral data of patients performance during their exercises to provide them for therapists for further analysis.
