"Medical visualization has been widely studied in computer graphics for years. Revolutionary breakthroughs have taken place in traditional medicine by creatively introducing computer graphic technologies. Computer graphics helps in many different aspects in medical visualization. Some of them are no longer new, for example CT, 3D MRI and virtual surgery assist doctors in preparing for high risk surgeries. Nowadays, with the advantage of visual effects and interactive design, it is becoming possible for medical visualization to improve some of the traditional medical treatment methods. This project will demonstrate a solution to integrate already-existing motion capture and interactive techniques and the traditional treadmill training method to improve the experience and effectiveness of the treatment for stroke victims."
