In this paper, are presented the advantages that augmented reality can give in a Stroke rehabilitation recovery process comparing traditional rehabilitation. Thus the work focuses on an Augmented Reality system specifically developed and designed for physical rehabilitation and Several Augmented Reality games were developed for Meta Quest platform that provides parameters for health professional to extract information about rehabilitation process outcomes. Additionally, two different Applications were developed to be used by a physiotherapist and a patient with the main purpose of better interaction between both. These applications provides essential information so that the interaction and performance of augmented reality games is carried out. Validation results of the system with several volunteers are also included in the paper.
