Abstract

Recently, games have become increasingly popular in many different areas such as military, health care, entertainments, education and government due to advancement in technology which have made it easy to interact with games. Specifically, the application of wearable devices, games and Internet-of-Things (IoT) can create a motivating atmosphere to facilitate the rehabilitation process of patients while enabling remote monitoring of their health and progress.
