In this paper, we propose a novel task-oriented motor function training and assistance of upper limbs system for patients following stroke based on Virtual-Reality. In this system, a haptic device (Phantom Omni) and an inertia sensor are used to realize coordination training of two hands. We hope that this kind of training with haptic sensory and visual sensory will be helpful to stroke patients. This system is convenient and compact so that it is suitable for home-based rehabilitation. On the other hand, relative assessment system has been developed subsequently. In that system, the inertia sensor is also used and a 6-axises force sensor installed on the hand of 6 DOF robot is used to assess the effect of training.
