This study is to use VR and MR technology to intelligently help user get physical and psychology rehabilitation train. System can enter a recovery training plan based on recovery to the position of the disorder, and the purpose is to build a rehab system that promotes pleasure without a supervisor. For this purpose, we will create an experimental VR game that can guide the user’s movement, record healthy university students as samples of health, collect sample images, and build a reference model of health. Then, each category of VR games of interest induction including animation characters is produced. Psychology rehabilitation train can provide special scenes to effect user with visual impact. Finally, field experiments are conducted to examine the function and user experience of the rehabilitation system by interest induction.
