The Tutor System – HandTutor LegTutor and Traumatic Brain Injury

According to the Brain Injury Association of America 1.7 million people suffer a TBI each year in the U.S. Of these,between 75% and 90% are categorized as Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI).
• MTBIs cost the nation nearly $17 billion each year.
• Research indicates that up to 15% of patients diagnosed
  with MTBI may have persistent, disabling problems.
The TUTOR System has been in the forefront of rehabilitation for Brain Injury patients.
Victims of brain injury including traumatic (TBI) and stroke can benefit greatly from the  TUTOR system– the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and the 3DTUTOR. The TUTOR system is being used successfully in leading U.S. and foreign hospitals and clinics and is also benefiting home care patients through the use of telerehabilitation.
The newly developed HANDTUTOR and its sister devices have become a key system in neuromuscular rehabilitation and physical therapy for brain injury patients. These innovative devices implement an impairment based program with augmented feedback  that encourages intensive practice and motor learning through active exercises. The exercises are challenging and motivating and allow for repetitive and intensive  training tailored to the patient’s performance and motor and sensory and cognitive movement ability. Customized, simple but powerful rehabilitation software allows the physical and occupational therapist  the ability to adjust the program and exercise difficulty to the patient’s movement ability. The system also includes objective quantitative evaluations that allow the physiotherapist and his occupational therapist colleagues to report on the patient’s exercise progress. Telerehabilitation features allow the HANDTUTOR, LEGTUTOR, ARMTUTOR and the 3DTUTOR to be supported by the physical rehabilitation team when the patient is at home. This ensures that the patient is motivated to do more practice between treatments by the therapists.  The TUTOR system is suitable for children as well as adults.
