Movement disorder diagnosis available via Xbox Kinect

Australian entrepreneur Glenn Bilby helped found Quick Posture, a software for Microsoft's Xbox Kinect that can diagnose and help doctors manage movement-related diseases such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. Quick Posture uses biomechanics algorithms to measure movements and detect issues and then create a 3D image and complete an electronic report.  Both patient and physician can use the reports to conveniently manage medications on a daily basis. At a selling price of $199, the software will be available for Kinect 2; it provides an economic alternative to X-rays or MRI scans. Story
