BAHT Webinar Programme 2020
GripAble is delighted to support the British Association of Hand Therapists’ excellent programme of webinars for 2020: “Demystifying the Difficult”
We are sponsoring the session on 5 November covering theory and practical assessment of the sensorimotor system of the wrist. This webinar will offer top tips and applied theory for the treatment of pre-dynamic and dynamic instabilities, and will be full of ideas for hospital and home-based rehabilitation.
The session will be delivered by the NES Hands team: Nicola Goldsmith (pictured), Elaine Juzl and Sarah Mee. Nicola and Elaine are Clinical Specialist Hand Therapists; Sarah is Consultant Hand Therapist.
With an introduction by Lucy Nash, Vice Treasurer at the BAHT Committee.
GripAble is a two-in-one assessment and training device to help people with weakened hands and arms. Mobile, portable and lightweight, the handheld device connects, via WiFi or Bluetooth, to an app on a tablet, where the user can play fun and engaging activities.
GripAble tracks four key hand movements – grip / release, wrist extension / flexion, radial / ulnar deviation and pronation / supination; repetitions, and minutes of training. The device is highly sensitive and can be used by most people, even those with limited grip or movement. Easy to set up, GripAble can be calibrated and personalised to each user’s ability.
Physical rehabilitation is critical to restoring quality of life after stroke and many other neurological, orthopaedic and paediatric conditions, and studies show that the more repetition and strength training a person performs, the greater their chance of restoring movement and, ultimately, their independence. GripAble enables your therapist to set regular goals and provides day by day feedback to help build motivation and engagement with training activities.
GripAble is based on intuitive, fuss-free technology so you can get set up in minutes.
