Opportunities for Early Intervention – Theory, Neuroscience, & Clinical

In the October edition of Physical Therapy Dr. Ulrich and her team at Developmental Neuromotor Control Laboratory University of Michigan discuss In the October edition of Physical Therapy Dr. Ulrich and her team at Developmental Neuromotor Control Laboratory University of Michigan discuss opportunities for Early Intervention Based on Theory, Basic Neuroscience, and Clinical Science http://www.mdlinx.com/neurology/newsl-article.cfm/3347945/ZZCAE0E31721F24A4B96A2B5EEAE9465A6/?news_id=914&newsdt=110310&subspec_id=521

They conclude that therapeutic approaches in the pediatric population have generally been less aggressive than those implemented for younger and older adults. They suggest that caregivers and therapists should learn how to implement intervention programs focused on the development of specific functional skills. However it is not easy to engage younger children in tasks that are painful or motivating for the child.

For this reason the dedicated rehabilitation software of the HandTutopr has specific functional virtual functional tasks that can be customized to the motor sensory and cognitive movement ability of the patient. The ability to customize the task keeps the patient motivating during there exercise routine. This then allows them to increase the intensity of the training which promotes neuromuscular rehabilitation and functional receovery. http://www.meditouch.co.il/index.php?page=abouthnd
