App Store Description

“The human hand is one of the most precise and wonderful mechanical devices in creation and vastly more impressive than any mechanical device that man has made”
...........Stuart Burgess, Professor of Mechanical Engineering

This innovative app includes 38 exercises (listed below) designed by therapists that enhances and simplifies the rehabilitation experience for both the patient and therapist. This app is also appropriate to be used by anybody wishing to improve targeted muscle development.

The app eliminates patient confusion about any aspect of the exercise routine created specifically for their injury by their health professional. For the therapist it simplifies the creation of the exercise routine and provides the opportunity to confirm that the patient is performing their rehabilitation as prescribed. Never before has this level of exercise coordination been achieved that provides a better understanding and communication between the therapist and the patient. No longer is there any reason for the patient to leave the therapist’s office with just a piece of paper to describe the exercises to perform. This app will hasten the individuals return to activities of daily living, their job or to the sport they love.

The movement of the hand is determined by a sophisticated and coordinated relationship between bone, muscle, tendons, ligaments and the brain. Trauma to the wrist, thumb, finger or palm is quite common in society, but many people never seek treatment. Any injury to the underlying structures of the hand carries the potential for serious handicap. Whether mild or severe, they often inhibit a person’s ability to live life fully. Delaying the diagnosis and treatment may result in long-term problems or even permanent disability. Even minor injuries should be seen by a physician as soon as possible. The exercises in this app were created under the expert supervision of professionals in the field. To avoid injury you should always work with a therapist before performing these exercises.
