Brooks Rehab’s latest high-tech innovation might seem more at home in an arcade than a physical therapy office.
The two organizations will use a Microsoft Kinect-based physical therapy program to monitor patients as they perform rehabilitation exercises at home. Kinect is a gaming platform that uses a motion sensor device and a webcam to pick up on a person’s movements and gestures. Reflexion’s use of the program in a clinical environment is being beta tested with a select group of health care providers.
The program coaches patients through physical therapy exercises while sending information and qualitative data back to clinicians and allows the patient and physical therapist to interact in real time through video. Therapists can also review videos taken while the patient is exercising, and based on the results, quickly assess areas where a patient may be having difficulty.
