How to Fix a Hand


It is a known fact  that one-third of all acute injuries happen in the upper extremities of the body.  The most common fractures occur in fingers, mostly because of sports-related injuries. The hand is a very complex and important area of the body which has 27 different bones and 34 muscles that work jointly to perform even simple motions. When pain occurs, a lack of normal function can make the performance of daily tasks and activities difficult.
 Arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Dupuytren’s disease are common hand conditions that patients will be diagnosed with. These conditions can result from lifestyle, age,  and occupation. In athletic sport, sprains and fractures  are frequently seen in the fingers and hand. The components of this area of the body work together as one, but when a injury or dysfunction  arise, the whole hand is affected.
 When a hand, arm, elbow or other upper limb suffers an injury or surgery that incapacitates it and physical therapy is indicated the most effective physical therapy solution should be brought into play. Such a product is the TUTOR system. Specifically the HANDTUTOR and
its sister devices ( ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR) which  have been developed to teach children and adults how to reuse their joints after hand and wrist injuries such as trauma or stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries, CP, MS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and a host of other serious debilitating diseases that affect hand, wrist and arm movement ability.
 These can be treated with the HANDTUTOR and the ARMTUTOR. The unique and successful physical therapy products use a dedicated software that utilizes games to enhance and improve the patient’s functional movement ability by motivating the patient to do intensive movement practice which is the key element in an occupational and physical therapist‘s treatment of movement impairments. The games, such as, Car Race, Snowball, Catch The Ball, Sky Defender and others captivate and motivate the child and even the adult to excel and thereby to improve their range of motion and general use of the hand or wrist. The TUTORS  use tele rehabilitation for those patients that are home bound or who have recovered sufficiently to get their treatment at home. Leading U.S. and European hospitals and outpatient clinics now use the TUTORs which are fully certified by the FDA and CE. See WWW.MEDITOUCH.CO.IL for more information.
