Contributing to SDGs 3, 9 and, this article describes the development of a virtual-reality-enabled Tai-Chi System (VTCS). VTCS integrates Tai-Chi with a series of cutting-edge computer technologies including 4D sensor technology, big-data, signal processing and analysis, human body kinematics, deep learning, virtual reality, and 4D-reconstruction. The system is designed to make Tai-Chi movements suitable to individuals who suffer from mobility disabilities due to diseases or injuries as an accessible rehabilitation and fitness modality.
