Video Game Technology Helping Physical Therapy Patients & Athletes at Mizzou Lab

    New studies from researchers at the University of Missouri provide evidence that inexpensive video game technology can help health care providers discover injury risk and track rehabilitation progress among athletes and physical therapy patients. Traditional motion-based lab technology for physical therapists and athletic trainers can cost upward of $100,000. Now, a team of University of Missouri researchers is finding that Microsoft’s Kinect, its depth camera which is often associated with video game systems, can provide health care providers with objective information to improve patient care.
