Lack of Balance Can be Alleviated with the 3DTutor and LegTutor – Tutor System

Many patients suffering from neurological illnesses such as stroke, head or spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, CP, MS and others also suffer from a lack of balance. The TUTOR system has been created recently to assist in alleviating the symptoms of this problem.

To improve balance the patient has to do repetitive exercise practice in order to increase their motor sensory movement ability. The TUTOR uses the concept of repetitive massed practice through rehabilitation games that are customized to the patients movement ability by the OT and PT. The TUTOR System – HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR  allows the PT and OT to set the rehabilitation game to the patient’s movement ability. While doing the exercise practice with the TUTORS the patient will receive augmented motion feedback on the position of their limb. The OT and PT will therefore use the games with balance exercises and the patient will receive augmented motion feedback on the position of their limb. By practicing the controlled exercises prescribed by the OT and PT the patient will improve their balance and proprioception ability. The resulting improvement in the patient’s movement ability including balance will allow the patient to better do functional tasks such as walking and standing. See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
