Evidence shows that regular physical excercises for persons with an existing disability can reduce the incidence of associated secondary chronic conditions and improve physical function. In the BMBF funded research project akrobatik@home a training game was developed, which offers people with a reduced physical mobility the possibility to solve a workout with or without assistance by a therapist in any remote location. A shoulder pad with an integrated sensor module placed at the neck-area acts as the game control by detecting the lateral and inclinated position of the wearer´s torso. Therefore 3D acceleration data, gathered by an acceleration sensor, is transformed into a 2D-plane.
