What is Jintronix

Jintronix is the only FDA cleared motion capture system designed for rehabilitation. Leveraging Microsoft's Kinect sensor, Jintronix captures the 3-D position of 25 joints on the human body 30 time a second, without the need to wear sensors on the body, allowing the system to turn prescribed exercises into a fun by using interactive video style game. Jintronix is completely hands free. While rehab patients are playing their way through therapy, the system automatically tracks a broad range of performance date allowing our therapists to build more personalized therapy plan which caters to the patient's specific rehabilitation needs.
The Ohio Eastern Star Home the first facility in Ohio to be using Jintronix
Being researched at over 15 Universities around the world (from UW Medicine in Seattle WA to University of Tasmania in Australia)
Created with support from Microsoft in Redmond, WA



"Normally we think of technology like ours would first appear in larger cities like Cleveland or Cincinnati Ohio. The Ohio Easter Star Home in Mount Vernon showed an awesome level of excitement and innovation to be the first facility in the State of Ohio to adopt this state-of-the art system like Jintronix. Since deployment, we have already installed the system in more than 6 other facilities around the state but there can only be 1 first mover and that honor goes to The Ohio Eastern Star Home."

"It's awesome to see how the technology has evolved from prototype in the labs at Microsoft to being used across the United States. With over 50 facilities using Jintronix on a regular basis and growing, it's clear that physical and occupational therapy is ready and excited for new innovatives that improve the quality of care."

-David Schacter, COO of Jintronix
