Comments Off on Financial Post: How Microsoft Kinect has inspired ‘the surgeon’s GPS’
Another Canadian startup, no rx Montreal’s Jintronix Inc., is building software that couples Kinect’s motion sensing and scanning properties with clinical programs to deliver physical therapy exercises remotely to patients such as stroke victims and those in geriatric care.
We had 139 patients who have gone through the Jintronix study, and of those 139 patients we were able to take their rehospitalization rate from 11 to 5% and that’s – when you’re comparing similar groups, from the previous time of last year.
