Objective and Main contents: A Haptic-Rehab System (, a rehabilitation system with Haptic Device, can reproduce various sensations, abounding with realistic touches through Virtual Reality. This paper describes the overview of this system and the result of an experiment. This system aims to develop effective rehabilitation techniques, to motivate clients by arousing clients' interest, and to prove results of the therapeutic effects quantitatively. Results and Conclusion: In this study, 76 volunteers tried out 4 tests with this system, tracing the moving target displayed on the monitor. The study includes the difficulty levels of tests and the normative data of four different tests, which examines each subject's hand-to-eye coordination. The HR system provides a guideline of rehabilitation for hand-to-eye coordination.
