Parsapour's own company 5plus Therapy is hoping to work with any of the above companies to establish a better standard of measurement for telerehabilitation. His software uses Microsoft Kinect to measure patients' range of movement, something that previously had to be done with a dedicated analogue physical therapy device called a goniometer.

"We're making a technologic leap that would be comparable to going from an abacus to a calculator," he told MobiHealthNews. "We're taking a tool that's necessary and we're making it digital. We're making it something that addresses the needs of a therapist in 2013."
