Israeli BioGaming makes physical therapy fun and effective through video gamesMar. 29, 2016
Coming back from an injury can be a long and annoying process. Setting up appointments and beginning a physical therapy regimen is just the beginning; sticking with the oftentimes dull routine of exercises can be tough to maintain, even for dedicated athletes.
To make the road to recovery more entertaining and effective, Israel-based BioGaming has developed a series of video games that help users perform their exercises correctly while monitoring their progress.
Utilizing the motion tracking capabilities of the Microsoft Kinect for Windows or on Xbox, the SaaS product is sold as a subscription to clinics that can prescribe them to their patients, who can then use the game from home.
Founded in 2012 by CEO Dudi Klein, BioGaming has been labeled a medical device and is already working with users in the United States, Israel, and in Europe. Their product has already received official approval from the FDA, and they can work under the European regulations with their CE mark and ISO 13485 certification.
