A platform for physiotherapy patients where they can do their exercises in front of a Kinect camera and we can provide them with in-depth and detailed feedback about their exercises.

So we can tell them what portion of an exercise they’re doing wrong and we’ll give them feedback to improve those specific flaws in their, you know, in their performance.

This platform also provides data to their correspondent physiotherapist — give them data on how they are doing, how often they’re doing their exercises. And you know, it’s a tool for physiotherapists to track their patients’ progress as well.

If they do the exercises, they’re going to get better, you know, they’re going to get stronger. It improves their quality of life.
