Kinect

The second-generation of Kinect for Windows is coming this summer, but a select number of developers have early access. Those developers are working on cool experiences that will come with Kinect for Windows. We've seen Kinect used to treat patients in a variety of ways. One company, Jintronix, has just been granted FDA approval for their unique approach with Kinect.

Jintronix (www.jintronix.com)is a company that makes physical rehabilitation software that uses Kinect for Windows. In this instance, the company has an innovative way to help rehabilitate those who have suffered a stroke. The approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will open up the way for Jintronix to help rehabilitate more stroke victims.

The 510(k) clearance granted by the FDA will enable Jintronix to directly be used by patients in a healthcare setting. The motion tracking and visual feedback provided by Kinect make it an ideal tool to help patients recover.
