We present a haptic telerehabilitation framework for patients with upper-limb dysfunction that is well-suited for deployment in patients' homes. Specifically, a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) haptic force-feedback driving wheel interfaces with a PC to create a haptic Virtual Driving Environment (hVDE). Coupling this framework with parametric exercise/movement protocols--structured as driving exercises along paths of varying complexity--is the key to the creation of an inexpensive, immersive, and yet individualized personal-movement trainer.
