The Xbox is becoming an even more amazing piece of technology thanks to the Kinect sensors that enable a wide range of uses inside the home; the 'Vera' app, which has just received approval from the FDA, is one of the latest uses that is sure to revolutionize how we think about physiotherapy.

The 'Vera' app works by utilizing the Kinect sensors to place the patient virtually into the class. From here, they will be constantly monitored to ensure they're doing the movements correctly to help make sure they don't do things incorrectly or in the wrong position.

With the population aging at an increasingly rapid rate and the need for more flexible (and cost-effective) physiotherapy solutions needed, the 'Vera' app is a fantastically innovative way to utilize the Kinect sensor.
