Abstract: TO EXPLORE THE OPPORTUNITIES OF USING AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) TO ENHANCE THE UPPER-EXTREMITY FUNCTIONS OF DIVERSE USERS, AN AR-ASSISTED THREE-STAGE HEALTHCARE EXERCISING (ARTHE) SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. ARTHE INCORPORATES SEVEN AR-ASSISTED UPPER-EXTREMITY EXERCISES THAT HAVE BEEN CATEGORIZED INTO THREE STAGES FOLLOWING THE MOTOR RECOVERY PROCESS. TO PROVIDE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE VIEW OF THE USER?S CONDITIONS, FIVE FLEX SENSORS, FIVE FORCE SENSORS AND TWO ACCELEROMETERS ARE INSTALLED ON AN AR-BASED DATA GLOVE TO MEASURE THE BENDING DEGREES OF THE FINGERS, GRIP FORCE AND ACCELERATION OF THE ARM SIMULTANEOUSLY. IN ADDITION, TWO LOW-COST RESIDENTIAL-BASED BARE-HAND INTERACTION METHODS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED. THE FIRST METHOD DETECTS THE FULL RANGE OF MOTION OF FINGERS USING THEIR PROJECTION LENGTHS. THE SECOND METHOD MONITORS HAND MOVEMENTS AND ENABLES USERS TO INTERACT WITH COMPUTER-GENERATED OBJECTS. A USABILITY STUDY INDICATES THAT THE ARTHE SYSTEM IS A MORE CONDUCIVE TOOL TO ENHANCE UPPER-EXTREMI
