Kinect for Windows being used to put patients at ease

A children's clinic in Miami which specializes in treating children with cancer and blood disorders hopes to shake things up by introducing new technology which can be used to put patients at ease during treatment.

Microsoft Kinect is one of the many pieces of technology being implemented and is being used to help reinforce patients' mind-body connection with engaging play and entertainment. The use of technology in general also serves as a way of reducing patients' fear of technology and the treatments they face.

We feel the use of Kinect being used for the rehabilitation and enjoyment of patients' is great and it is a good example of how devices like the Kinect can be used for a more serious purpose, without losing its light-hearted and fun appeal.
