Occupational Therapists Can Boost their Success with the Tutor System

  • Rebekah Polley writing in the Central Queensland News on  21st October 2011 about Roslyn Core. Rosalyn is an OT from Education Queensland who helps children take part better in everyday activities at school and within the community. She works on helping her patients achieve the developmental milestones including  fine motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination. When you see the kids reaching the milestones that we have set with their family’s and our multidisciplinary Physical therapy and rehabilitation team my job is extremely rewarding.
    This week is  OT Week in Australia. The week is set up to spread awareness about the work occupational therapists OT’s do.
    Occupational therapists use the HandTutor, ArmTutor, LegTutor, 3DTutor –  known as the Tutor system as a manual therapy tool to help them with their rehabilitative work.
     The Tutor system (HandTutor, ArmTutor, LegTutor, 3DTutor) has shown much success in rehabilitation of joint movement. The newly developed Tutors consist of ergonomic wearable devices the HandTutor is a glove for hand therapy and the Armtutor is an arm brace for elbow and shoulder rehabilitation.  The system is indicated for patients to be used by occupational therapists and physiotherapists in rehabilitation centers, private clinics and the home where it can be supported by telerehabilitation. It is designed for those who have head, trunk, upper and lower extremity movement dysfunction.
    The system consists of motivating and challenging games that allow the patient to practice isolated and/or interjoint coordination exercises.  The dedicated rehabilitation software allows the physical and occupational therapist to fully customize the exercises to the patient’s movement ability. In addition the OT and PT can make objective follow up and reports on their patients progress. Rehabilitation aims to optimizes the patient’s motor, sensory and cognitive performance and allows the patient to better perform everyday functional tasks to improve their quality of life. This is achieved by the HandTutor, ArmTutor, LegTutor, 3DTutor that is FDA and CE certified.
