In the February edition of stroke http://bit.ly/i3MCI2 Dr. Ming-De Chen of Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University, Chicago USA detail clinical trials that support the use of exercise to improve health related quality of life in stroke survivors. They conclude that the challenge for researchers is identifying effective strategies for sustaining these effects post intervention.

The HandTutor, ArmTutor and LegTutor are upper arm, hand – finger/s wrist and lower extremity rehabilitation systems indicated for patients in rehabilitation centers, private clinics and the home care environment. The home care patient can benefit from tele-rehabilitation. The HandTutor and other Tutor systems use dedicated rehabilitation software that employs motivating games that can be customized to the stage of rehabilitation and the patient’s movement dysfunction. The virtual functional tasks employed ensure that the patient undertakes intensive repetitive active exercise practice with the games being motivating and well tolerated.
