FDA clearance paves the way for Kinect for Windows rehab system to help stroke victims

Jintronix, a medical technology startup, has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its innovative rehabilitation system that uses Kinect for Windows to help stroke victims recover physical functions.

Jintronix’ system includes exercises like “Fish Frenzy,”which guides patients through hand exercises by putting them in control of a virtual fish on the hunt for food.

“We’re very excited about receiving FDA clearance, which paves the way for Jintronix to help in the rehabilitation of countless stroke victims,” said Shawn Errunza, Jintronix CEO, on the Kinect for Windows Blog.
