The HandTutor system consists of both evaluation and treatment resources within the dedicated software. This allows for quantitative evaluation of the improvement of the patients movement performance. The HandTutor system should also be used in combination with task practice as it has been proven that the sensory feedback from the task is important in physical rehabilitation outcomes. ADL outcome measures should also be powerful enough to give a quantitative measure of the patient’s functional movement improvement.
