In this case study, we examine the functional utility of an embodied agent as an interactive medium in stroke rehab. A set of physical rehab exercises is conducted through the direct engagement of an embodied agent, the uBot-5. Based on the preliminary data, we argue that a general-purpose embodied agent has a potential to functionally complement human therapists in providing rehab to stroke patients.
