LYA WODRASKA writing in The Salt Lake Tribune on October 11, 2011 reports that any hope remaining that quarterback Jordan Wynn will return this year ended Monday when the Utah Utes announced Wynn, who injured his left shoulder in the Utes’ thirty one to fourteen loss to Washington, must have shoulder surgery to repair the damage.

This will be the second surgery in less than a year for the junior, who had surgery in December on his right shoulder.

Wynn finishes this year 66-for-116 for 727 yards and six touchdowns with two interceptions. We saw that Wynn struggled throwing long due to the lingering effects from the December surgery and he now faces another long recovery following the repair to his nonthrowing arm.

Jordan will have to do intensive rehabilitation to come back as he is eligible for a redshirt season.

The ArmTutor can assist Mr. Wynn in regaining full use of his shoulder.

The ArmTutor™ system has been developed to allow for functional rehabilitation of the upper extremity. The system consists of an ergonomic wearable arm brace and dedicated rehabilitation software. The ArmTutor™ rehabilitation concept is based on performing controlled exercise rehabilitation practice at a patient customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance. So early in recovery from shoulder surgery the occupational and physical therapist will work on improving range of motion and accuracy and speed of movements as well as muscle strength. The exercises are designed in the form of challenging games that are suitable for a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic injury and disease.

The games challenge the patient to perform the exercise task to their best ability and to continue exercise practice.

The ArmTutor™ allows for isolated and a combination of elbow and three directional shoulder treatment. The system provides detailed exercise performance instructions and precise feedback on the patients exercise performance. Controlled exercise of multijoints within the normal movement pattern prevents the development of undesired and compensatory joint movement and ensures better performance of functional tasks.

The ArmTutor™system with its sister devices (HandTutor, LegTutor and 3DTutor) is used by many leading rehabilitation centers worldwide and has full FDA and CE certification.
