Rehabilitation exercises are those exercises that help in improving joint and muscle function, helping people stand, balance, walked. But these exercises work if done regularly and done as proposed by the therapist. Sometimes the patients has problems like scheduling their daily tasks, their commitment for doing those exercises, and some other difficultiessimilar to this. Thus failing to do the movementsand get benefit from the exercises. This paper proposes a system that provides an intuitive way for rehabilitation. This systemcontains use of pervasive health technologies for addressing theover difficulty. The system would provide a graphical interfacethat would help the physiotherapist to create exercises in 3Denvironment, wherein he would be animating a humanoid to showhow the exercise is to be done. This would show to be more intuitive to patients rather thanon paper. The system would also let therapist to monitor patient while he/she is exercising.
