In the November edition of Disability & Rehabilitation Dr. Molier of the Roessingh Research and Development Enschede Netherlands discusses augmented feedback and its influence on motor relearning of the hemiparetic arm after stroke. http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/09638281003734359
The report concludes that augmented feedback in general has an added value for stroke rehabilitation.

The HandTutor system provides patients with augmented feedback. This means that the rehabilitation games tell the patient how to move their hand and arm and give quantitative feedback on the quality of the patient’s movement. It is this method that teaches the patient how to move their hand again. www.HandTutor.com
