“I was introduced to the Hand Mentor… and the immediate benefits were that I could see some progress being made on the first day, which was incredible because I had virtually no movement in the arm or the hand. And you know just moving it a sixteenth of an inch here or there made a heck of a difference. I would say that comparing it other things I did in the clinic, it was more fun… so it took a lot of monotony out of what we would do every day, and that was the whole key for me.”Steve S.
“After he’d been cut off from his physical therapy last November, he got depressed and he would get angry with me when I would make him do his exercises. Now he’s in a much better mood and his depression has lifted.”Spouse of Injured US Veteran
“I can close my fingers. I couldn’t close them before. I can grip things and pick them up. I have a little bit of a harder time letting go of stuff, but we’re working on that part, and the Hand Mentor actually helps that a lot… And it works really well. It was kind of cool with the way it works with the of games on it. Makes it a little more interactive. The amount of function I have now compared to what I had right after is probably 80% different. I’m not retired. I am still working a full-time job. I still go to the gym. I do all that stuff, so it would fit in really nice at home.”Meri E.
“It was hard at first because my mind is broken and the leg don’t work unless the mind is working… the game made me realize that my leg was there… The game got me thinking better… and it did it without me knowing about it.’’Injured US Veteran
“I couldn’t move nothin’ but now I can do all of this and do all of this. I can go up and down the ramp out there now four times by myself down and up… I couldn’t do nothin’ before.”Injured US Veteran
“I’ve got a lot more movement out of my hand since these last two projects I’ve worked on with the Hand Mentor. Now I can pull my pants up and button them without laying on my back and pull them together with one hand. I’m able to stand up and hold it and do things like that. I’ve enjoyed working with the hand mentor, there’s no question about it it’s helped me a lot.”John R.
“We’d have to go to Decatur [Georgia] from here and that’s a good 4 hours with travel time. Normally when we have a doctor’s appointment, we’d leave at around 4 in the morning so that we can get down there… I wouldn’t have done the therapy if I had to go down there.”Injured US Veteran
“I noticed a difference almost immediately… my arm feels much looser and limber, less stiff, and easier to move.”Injured US Veteran
“Now I can dress myself, cut my food, and get in and out of the bed. I can actually just stand and grab this and be on my way instead of waiting for somebody to help me.”Injured US Veteran
“There’s no need to travel because I’m right here in the house. I can stop and go back to it, like if I want to eat, I can eat and go back to it and be in the same place.”Injured US Veteran
