Hi Tech Physical Therapy Solutions Available for Everyone

People that have disabilities are a group within society that could gain much from all the new technologies but somehow they have one of the lowest rates of usage of these technologies. Therefore benefits of using a computer and the internet are underused at best.

Actually one of the reasons for this phenomenon is that a large percentage of these disabled people are poor and therefore don’t have access to this equipment or its monthly maintenance charges. Unfortunately these people don’t understand how the internet and computers can give them a greater sense of independence and would allow them to integrate into society.

Some Internet service providers have come up with a solution and will provide a free computer for those that sign up for a long term subscription. In addition there are simpler user interfaces that are available to allow more comfortable usage of the technology. This is especially helpful to some elderly people. Of course a period of educating this segment of society to the possibilities is necessary before many of them begin to take advantage of the technology. Once that’s accomplished there will have to be training and support afforded to them.

Those that are disabled due to a stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease,upper or lower limb surgery and other disabling   illnesses or injuries will find much needed help in one of the newest physical rehabilitation solutions available.  The TUTOR system consisting of the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR,LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR  are part of physical rehabilitation solutions that are now available. Relatively inexpensive the TUTOR system allows for intensive exercises through the use of dedicated and customized software. The HANDTUTOR which is an ergonomic glove and the LEGTUTOR and ARMTUTOR which are braces detect finger, wrist, leg, ankle and hip movements. This information is recorded and allows the therapist to fully customize the treatment session. The exercises thus provide augmented feedback which then leads to enhanced functional rehabilitation. These physical rehabilitation products are in use in leading U.S. and European hospitals and clinics. The TUTOR system can also be used by the patient from his own home through the use of telerehabiliation. See See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM and WWW.MEDITOUCH.CO.IL for more information.
