Kinect and Xbox one Games for Stroke patient

I am planning to buy Xbox one with Kinect for my younger brother who had a stroke 4 months ago. He can stand, walk and move his arm. But can't hold things from his hand at the moment. Therefore, I want to buy both console and Kinect so that he can play games using the Kinect camera instead of controller.

Can you please tell me is there any active games available for that?

Information RE: Kinect and Xbox one Games for Stroke patient
The most active games I can think of would be:

Air Guitar Warrior For Kinect (Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/air-gu...1v96v2x5xb)

Beatsplosion For Kinect (Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/beatsp...1c1bs3ss0v)

Kinect Sports Rivals (Available on disc or download - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/kinect...hsml8030zn)

Kung-Fu For Kinect (Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/kung-f...k1lrw59l64)

Shape Up - (Available on disc or download - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/shape-...pcn7flmv53

And if he likes dancing there's:

Dance Central Spotlight (download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/dance-...lqh891mwm0),

Zumba Fitness World Party (Available on disc or download - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/zumba-...j8bw2b3fnx)

Just Dance games (Various available both on disc and to download.)

When you say he can move his arm do you mean both arms or just one? And can he open and close his hands? If he can only use one arm and/or can't open and close his hands that would limit the games he could play. Air Guitar Warrior, Beatsplosion and Kung-Fu For Kinect require both arms.

I think some of the sports in Kinect Sports Rivals can be played with one arm but the only one I can think of that doesn't require both arms and opening and closing hands is Target Shooting.

I don't know if all the mini-games in Shape Up require both hands or if any require opening and closing hands.

The dancing games could technically be played with one arm but obviously he wouldn't score as well and I don't know how well you have to do to progress in the games. Also they may require opening and closing hands for the menus, I'm not sure. But obviously somebody else could help with that if he can't do that.

The following games are also fairly active and technically could be played with one arm, it's just harder that way:

Boom Ball 1 (Download only -https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/boom-b...j8pcxk5xlq)

Boom Ball 2 (Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/boom-b...ngpjhhwpw6)

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 (Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/fruit-...kfdf4dhwrz)

Slice Zombies For Kinect (Don't worry, they're cartoony zombies in a Fruit Ninja-style game, it's suitable for children. Download only - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/slice-...54q80snldq)

There are also the following Xbox 360 games remastered for Xbox One being released at the end of this month but they will require both arms in Kinect mode and I don't know what changes have been made for Xbox One, so they may require opening and closing hands in some places:

Disneyland Adventures (Available on disc or download - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/disney...6z8dqxsqwh)

Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure (Available on disc or download - https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/rush-a...3pl76n0kwz)
