LegTutor, 3DTutor and ArmTutor Offer Complementary Therapy to Wounded Marine

Christine Cooley was prepared to accompany the body of her son, Sgt. Joshua Cooley, home from Iraq after he suffered severe injuries from an IED in 2005.
With the front third of his brain lost, the majority of his body  covered in burns and with countless pieces of shrapnel in his body he wasn’t expected to survive. But Joshua had the undying spirit of a Marine and the helping hands of the Healing Heroes Network. He began to make amazing progress up to a point but his left hand and leg were still weak and not usable.
Along came Dr. Allan Spiegel in Tampa Bay, Fla., who had a specialty in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Funded by the  Healing Heroes Network progress now was sped up immensely and Josh was eventually able to get back on his horse for rides as well as accomplish further limited chores. One of the overriding issues was to get his left side back  to as a normal a mobility status as possible.
The TUTORS (HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR) present an excellent supplement to new and traditional therapies for brain injury patients with incomplete paralysis. This is because the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR allow the physical and occupational therapist to give patients  customized, intensive and repetitive exercise practice according to their movement ability. This allows for the dose and intensiveness of manual therapy to be increased as the patient is motivated to do the correct exercises without doing compensatory movement . The HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR have been shown to improve range of motion as well as  speed and accuracy of movement and improve functional movement ability in patients with brain,spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, CP, MS,stroke, Radial and Ulnar nerve and Brachial Plexus injuries, and other disabling diseases. The HANDTUTOR is being used in leading  rehabilitation departments in the US and other countries in addition to outpatient and private clinics. Patients discharged from inpatient rehabilitation departments are benefiting from the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR and the intensive exercise practice in the comfort of their own homes supported by tele rehabilitation.   See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
