I want to be the $2000 Man

Fast Company reports on the winners of this year's Dyson Award. This is a pretty impressive device, offering a 20-degree improvement in range of motion. I'm puzzled that the target audience seems to be hospitals. I'd do the therapy if a device like this was available to me. Seems to me that the real benefit would come from using it in real-life situations, not just short therapy sessions. It's noteworthy that this device streams data to computers and smartphones, but the anticipated users seem to be only clinicians. I wish more data was made available to users too.
