Abstract: This paper is focused on the problem of repetitive strain injuries in hands. These injuries are mostly related to professional activities, especially in people that work at high levels of industrialization, patchwork or in use of advanced technology in productive process, as they are subject to a high rate of work where the performed tasks often lead to repetitive actions. The objective of this paper is the development of an application for hands detection and their movements to develop a game for preventing strain injuries. The activity will be developed in the software Unity, where it will be associated a 3D sensor, Intel RealSense 3D Camera F200. During the activity, the user will execute several prevention/relaxation exercises. With the activity implementation in companies and establishments, the employees will be able to exercise their hands, thus reducing the risk of being affected by strain injuries, contributing to the decrease or even elimination of the subsequent related cos ts with these injuries.
