personal statement

GesTherapy Mission:

Home exercise programs play an essential role in progressing physical therapy, and promoting an independent approach to wellness. However, if performed improperly, many prescribed exercises can be ineffective at treating the initial patient complaint, or even increase the risk of re-injury. GesTherapy uses accessible, low-cost motion-capture technology to monitor patient kinematics as they perform prescribed home exercise programs. It provides corrective feedback about movement patterns, and monitors patient symptoms to ensure that at-risk patients are performing their prescribed exercises in a safest environment possible. Furthermore, it provides therapists with valuable data relating to time spent performing prescribed exercises, percentage of exercises performed correctly, and multiple kinematic and symptomatic summaries for each patient. This data gives the therapist an unprecedented ability to make informed decisions when planning future treatments for their patients. The team at GesTherapy is passionate about our product’s ability to revolutionize the field of rehabilitation by giving patients the confidence to perform many hours of safe exercise in an environment that is carefully calibrated by a trained health professional. In collaboration with trained health professionals at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital (White Plains, New York) and the Association for the Blind of Western Australia (Perth, Western Australia) we have secured two large patient populations to test the efficacy of our product.
