AbilTo Harnesses TokBox's Web-Based Video Conferencing to Reinvent Therapy

AbilTo Is the First to Use TokBox to Deliver Team-Based Therapy Across the US

NEW YORK, NY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  AbilTo LLC, the leading provider of face-to-face video therapy programs for clients seeking to overcome the challenges of behavioral disorders and life transitions, today announced that it has selected TokBox's web-based video conferencing platform to deliver its proprietary programs.

Using the full suite of APIs available via the TokBox Platform, AbilTo has been able to seamlessly integrate video communications into their web experience. The intuitive video chat capability allows AbilTo clients to meet virtually with a therapist, coach or both without having to download software.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in four adults have a behavioral disorder; many lack access to private, convenient and effective assistance. To overcome these hurdles, AbilTo programs connect a team, consisting of a qualified therapist and coach, with individuals suffering as a result of: common behavioral disorders, such as adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) and Panic Attacks; or life transitions, such as those experienced by new mothers returning to work. Each program offers clients a set price for a fixed duration program delivered on a convenient schedule, including evenings and weekends.

"Millions of people with treatable behavioral disorders and difficult life transitions needlessly go without assistance because reliable help is difficult to find, buy and use," said Michael B. Laskoff, CEO, AbilTo. "TokBox's robust platform and consumer friendly features allow AbilTo to extend high-quality, face-to-face help to individuals seeking to reclaim their lives." 

"AbilTo is the first company harnessing our video chat to eliminate geographic barriers and fundamentally change traditional approaches to therapy," said Micky O'Brien, VP of Marketing and Business Development, TokBox. "We are very excited to see our technology applied in a manner intended to improve people's lives."
