Tutor System Becoming Increasingly Important in Brain Injury Rehabilitation

As reported in MED PAGE TODAY the tragic toll from traumatic brain injury continues to climb among athletes who routinely hit their heads — or use them as weapons — during play on the field or fights on the rink.
All the more reason to have the best methods to assist the athletes to recover their normal mobility. Doing that requires having the best equipment.
 The newly developed HandTutor and its sister devices (ArmTutor, LegTutor, 3DTutor) have become a key system in neuromuscular rehabilitation and physical therapy for interactive rehabilitation exercise. These innovative devices implement an impairment based program with augmented feedback and encourage motor learning through intensive active exercises. These exercises are challenging and motivating and allow for repetitive training tailored to the patient‘s performance. This training is tailored and customized by the occupational and physical therapist to ensure that the patient stays motivated to do intensive repetitive manual therapy and exercise practice.   The HandTutor, LegTutor, ArmTutor and 3DTutor is now  part of the rehabilitation program of leading U.S. and foreign hospitals with the Tutors being used in clinics and in home care. Home care patients can be supported by the occupational and physical therapist offering tele-rehabilitation. See http://www.HandTutor.com for more information.
