The MediTouch HandTutor physical therapy product has been developed to allow for functional and fine motor rehabilitation of the hand. The system consists of an ergonomic wearable glove and dedicated physical therapy rehabilitation software. The Hand Tutor system allows for a range of bio-mechanical evaluation including speed, passive and active range of motion and motion analysis of the fingers and wrist. Quantitative bio-mechanical data allow for objective evaluation and physical therapy treatment follow up.
The HandTutor physical therapy product is based on the accepted principles of Impairment Oriented Training (IOT) and controlled exercise physical therapy rehabilitation. Hand Tutor provides physical therapy rehabilitation at a patient customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance. The physical therapy exercises are designed in the form of challenging games and are suitable for a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic injury and disease. The physical therapy exercises challenge the patient to perform the task to their best ability and to continue exercise practice while the Hand Tutor monitors and reports improvement.
The HandTutor allows for isolated and a combination of finger/s and wrist treat physical therapy treatment. The system provides detailed exercise instructions and precise feedback on the patients exercise performance and improvement. Controlled physical therapy of hand within the normal functional movement pattern prevents the development of undesired and compensatory joint movement and ensures better performance of functional tasks.
