for the rehabilitation of extremity motor functioning in patients who have experienced a stroke. BACKGROUND A stroke occurs when an artery supplying blood to a part of the brain suddenly bleeds (haemorrhagic stroke) or becomes blocked (ischaemic stroke) causing a loss of function of part of the brain. Risk factors for stroke are the same as for any cardiovascular disease: obesity, lack of physical activity, high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and smoking. Stroke mainly affects older people with the 2 (...) Rehabilitation of stroke patients using virtual reality games: June 2010 rates of stroke increasing markedly with age from about 65 years, with the median age of patients having a stroke in Australia being approximately 79 years (Senes 2006). Ischaemic strokes are more common (85%) than haemorrhagic strokes, however both may affect functions including movement of body parts, vision, swallowing, communication, and may result in death. Nearly all patients are disabled immediately following a stroke event
