Abstract

This study utilized a descriptive quantitative research design by means of survey. The survey questionnaires were conducted to 30 purposively selected physical therapists in the affiliated centers of DLSHSI in Cavite. Statistical techniques used were the following: frequency, percentage, and mean. The results of the study proved that the respondents have agreed upon the clinical usefulness of Xbox 360 kinect in stroke rehabilitation particularly as a tool for biomechanical analysis, balance and coordination training, gait training, and/or upper and lower extremities range of motion exercises by having an overall mean score of 3.77 (agree). Nevertheless, the use of game consoles like Xbox 360 kinect to rehabilitation is meant to be used as an adjunct to the physical therapists' plan of care and not as a replacement for physical therapists.
