The Gary and Mary West Health Investment Fund said it has invested $7.5 million in Reflexion Health, a San Diego startup developing a system that uses Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensing system to help physical therapy patients with their rehab.
San Diego-based Reflexion Health, which offers physical therapy programs that leverage Microsoft Kinect for Windows, has raised $7.5 million from the West Health Investment Fund. The Fund was also the sole investor in Reflexion’s $4.25 million seed round in 2012. The Reflexion system is currently undergoing pilot studies at Partners HealthCare’s Center for Connected Health in Boston and San Diego’s Rady Children’s Hospital.
Digital health startup Reflexion Health wants to make prescribed physical therapy more engaging and easier for patients recovering from surgery with reduced mobility. It secured $7.5 million in Series A funding from West Health Institute’s fund to support the advancement of the Microsoft Kinect-based platform called Vera, according to a company statement.
Reflexion Health, Inc., developer of a software platform for rehabilitation medicine, today announced it has closed a $7.5 million Series A Preferred Stock financing, with the Gary and Mary West Health Investment Fund. Reflexion Health will use the proceeds of the financing to further develop “Vera™,” its Microsoft Kinect-based physical therapy program.
Bright minds at the West Health Institute in San Diego have developed a technology that allows patients in need of physical therapy to perform necessary exercises away from their doctors expert guidance through use of a Microsoft Kinect.
