Abstract This study assessed the possibility of rehabilitating two young adults with motor impairments using a Kinect-based system in a public school setting. This study was carried out according to an ABAB sequence in which A represented the baseline and B represented intervention phases. Data showed that the two participants significantly increased their motivation for physical rehabilitation, thus improving exercise performance during the intervention phases. Practical and developmental implications of the findings are discussed. Highlights ► To reduce staff intervention and enhance students’ motivation, interest, and perseverance to engage in physical rehabilitation, a Kinect-based system was employed with success. ► Single subject research design was used with two young adults who were diagnosed with motor disability. ► Data showed that the participants improve exercise performance during the intervention phases.
