FDA approves Kinect-powered rehab system



Reflexion Health has reached an important milestone: approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Vera system, which uses Kinect for Windows to help physical therapy patients.


Vera uses the depth sensing and body tracking capabilities of the latest Kinect sensor to capture a patient’s exercise movements in precise detail. The data on the patient’s movements are also shared with the therapist, who can track the patient’s progress and adjust the exercise regimen remotely for maximum therapeutic benefit.
