On April 18, 2016, PresenceLearning changed the tele-therapy game by launching the Lightyear (yes, named after the Toy Story character!) platform, the world leader in real-time, interactive, and hassle free tele-therapy.
Lightyear allows clinicians and their clients to:
- Participate in a 1-on-1 or 1-on-many live and face to face therapy session (speech, mental health, occupational therapy) on a web browser without any additional downloads
Create clinical content and upload material to the platform for used by hundreds of other clinicians on the platform
Play therapeutic games designed to improve memory
Co-browse the internet with all participants
Document notes and scores and store it securely in the students records in a HIPAA compliant storage stack
Key technologies used to develop Lightyear
Firebase - for real time syncing of multiple sessions
WebRTC - open sourced video conferencing solution
AngularJS - JS based front end framework
Saucelabs - remote cross browser automation testing
ProtractorJS - end to end automation testing
