The article presents the issues of biofeedback in virtual reality (VR). This VR module in ELISE robot gives a possible re-arrangement of the damaged motor cortex which can be activated with the mediation of mirror neurons or through the subject’s motor imagery. This ELISE robot will help to accelerate the recovery from various kinds of neurological disorders, especially from the effects of stroke. Four physical/education games in virtual reality are described in more detail. This paper presents the main technical characteristics of the project, especially design, VR module, rubber expander module for the spastic hand rehabilitation and the details of the hardware/software system. Moreover, psychological rehabilitation aspect is introduced through an innovative virtual assistant of physiotherapist. The functionality of the mechatronic device for hand, forearm and arm rehabilitation has been presented during the first tests, and preliminary assessment of usability and acceptance is promising.
