[Abstract] A Preliminary Study: Mobile Device for Hand and Wrist Rehabilitation – IEEE Conference Publication


Task-specific rehabilitation has emerged as an influential approach to address the specific neurological problems. In particular, the recovery of hand and wrist functions of people suffering from hemiparesis and hemiplegia has appeared as a means of voluntary practices. In this study, a passive rehabilitation device has been designed to offer repetitive, low-cost, portable, easy-to-use human-machine interface for people who have limited hand-wrist mobility, also substantially decrease the therapist’s workload, and provide motivation and objective feedback to users. Therapy-based task-oriented virtual reality games are also accompanied with the proposed rehabilitation device to raise patient’s attention and motivation throught the therapy.

[WEB SITE] GoMotive Launches New App for PTs

dreamstime_s_30233712AASeattle-based GoMotive has launched a new app designed to help physical therapists retain clients and build referrals.

According to the company, the app enables PTs to improve quality of care by using evidence-based video and text protocols that PTs can create themselves. The app allows PTs to modify the included templates to fit their practices to create HIPAA-compliant home exercise programs that they can schedule and control in progressive sequences.

With the new app, the company states on its website, PTs can create their own exercises and HEPs directly on their mobile devices. They can also record patients doing prescribed exercises, and track their progress via a mobile device or personal computer.

The app also includes a remote therapy system that enables PTs to learn when their patients are having trouble with an exercise and to provide instant feedback.

As well, PTs can use the app to connect with trainers and coaches to expand their practices while keeping their clients within their own account.
