Action observation (AO) and motor imagery (MI) are considered as promising therapeutic approaches in the rehabilitation of patients after a stroke (PaS). Observing and mentally rehearsing motor movements stimulate the motor system in the brain and result in a positive effect on movement execution. To support patients in the early rehabilitation phase after a stroke, ANIMATE, a digital health intervention platform was developed. The platform guides the user through 6 activities of daily living by observing and imagining the corresponding movements. We conducted a scenario-based usability test with 9 PaS at a rehabilitation centre to identify existing usability issues. PaS found the app easy to use and they could interact with it without problems. Although they judged the app as useful, they stated to be not willing to use the app on a regular basis. Including features for customising ANIMATE regarding the individual rehabilitation goals and needs of PaS, as well as personalisation could help in increasing the motivation to use and the benefits of the platform.
