We present a novel interdisciplinary project to develop a sensor-based Augment Reality (AR) system for individualized endurance training for elderly people. This distributed system supports interaction for users of old age and suggests individualised exercises by a therapist avatar. Based on sensor data acquired from the patients during training sessions the system adapts to patients individual training needs and thereby serves as a non-drug therapy for people with hypertension.
