We live in a very fast-paced society where people are always on the go and are constantly working. This can make life after a stroke especially tricky! Having a stroke often means having to slow down, which can sometimes lead to increased anxiety and depression if you try to jump back into life pre-stroke too quickly.
However, it’s crucial to take time and focus on healing first. Your health is your best asset after all! In order to work towards getting better after a stroke, it’s important to incorporate therapy into your daily routine, even after you leave the hospital. Fortunately, Neofect has created a portable home therapy program that can be used anywhere!
Portable Home Therapy for Stroke Rehabilitation
Neofect Smart Home Rehab has developed the Smart Glove which helps people who have suffered from a stroke to regain arm and hand function. The Smart Glove is lightweight and portable, and can be taken anywhere along with the 10 inch mobile tablet it connects with. The Smart Glove is a biofeedback tool that was created based on the theory of neuroplasticity.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to create new connections and neuro pathways by performing repetitive movements. The Smart Glove helps create a lot of repetition in a fun and engaging way, that is, by games played on a mobile tablet! Each of the activities encourage hand and wrist movements that are needed for daily life activities, so you can work to getting back to your old self.
Research has shown that utilizing the Smart Glove 5 times per week for at least 30 minutes has increased users upper extremity function as well as overall quality of life. Therefore, consistency is key!
