Summary Tele-rehabilitation has been widely studied in recent year, although a number of crucial issues has not been addressed. Quantitatively assessing exercise performance is vital in monitoring the progress in exercise based rehabilitation. This allows physiotherapists not only to refine rehabilitation plans, but also provides instant feedback to patients and facilitate the exercise performance in non-clinical setting. In this paper, we propose to evaluate the performance of upper extremity reaching tasks with in a kinematic perspective by assessing the smoothness of motion trajectories with the entropy of shape model, including curvature and torsion. The simulation result confirms that approximate entropy of shape model is consistent with the change of the smoothness in motion trajectory while it is capable of classifying six levels of the ability to perform upper extremity reaching tasks with higher accuracy.
