This paper presents a preliminary study on the effectiveness of using a virtual environment for automation of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) scoring. Also, a study of the feasibility of introducing a smoothness parameter to improve the scoring is described. A Kinect-based virtual environment was used for data acquisition and to enable a friendly method for the test administration. Movement smoothness was analyzed using the Spectral Arc length (SPARC).
