News from GestureTek
December 2013
As the inventors and world leaders of video control gesture technology, we  couldn't be more happy with the way people are embracing the gesture  controlled revolution that we started over 30 years ago. 

Our gesture controlled and multi-touch technology has never been so
popular and we are constantly finding new ways to incorporate it into  different environments and use it for different functions.

Everyday is an exciting day at GestureTek Health as the technology is
being applied in so many different ways in so many different markets.

This year has been no different and we've been extremely busy working on  some great projects and we are happy to share just a few of them with you.

We hope you find these business cases informative and they inspire you to  use our gesture controlled or multi-touch technology for your next project. You can find out more about our products here

We look forward to working with you in the future and we'd like to take this  opportunity to wish all of our readers and customers a very merry
Christmas and prosperous 2014.

I REX Immersive Full Body Video Games get Patients Moving and Engaged  in Rehabilitation Therapy

The Village at Marymount's new Parker Hannifin  Therapy and Wellness Center is excited about the
impact of their new GestureTek Health's  Interactive Virtual Reality Exercise System IREX.

IREX is an innovative video therapy system that  helps patients with their rehabilitation.Results have proven that patients who normally  wouldn't look forward to their physical therapy tend  to be more dedicated and enthusiastic about their recovery when they use the IREX system as it  involves playing a video game with your body.  It's a computer-generated virtual reality therapy  world that guides patients through interactive  rehabilitation exercises, games and activities that target specific body parts. The performance is  then measured and recorded to show improvement after each play.  The system includes a camera, computer, display, and some form of "green screen" that put the  patients in the middle of a scene.

The IREX system has completely revolutionised the physiotherapy world. With over 30 studies  conducted it has been shown time and time again that the IREX system provides a type of  therapy that can dramatically improve balance, strength, endurance and speed when compared  to traditional therapy, and patients do their therapy 2-3 times longer.

You can watch a video of the IREX system in operation at the Marymount Center here.
