Oddly enough- this is not our experience. See this
video....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtJijspdQuc&feature=share

We use the same camera as Microsoft uses. So...it CAN track just the
arms....its not a problem with the tracking system at all. As you all know, we
work every day to make games accessible and included in the rehab process for
people with disabilities...and I think Microsoft should be applauded for having
the conversation with us in September to address some of the issues. I'm sure
the next wave of games they come out with will have alternative options for
tracking.

Happy New Year!!!!

I just thought that this was interesting to read and thought I'd share.
