DynaWheel Treatment Areas
Gamifaction. Engagement. Adherence
An interactive paintball game with static and moving targets. Challenges cognitive skills while facilitating active upper extremity movement and progressive resistive strengthening of the hands. Use your shoulder, elbow, wrist and trunk to aim and then squeeze the handgrips to fire.
Shoulder: Flexion, abduction, horizontal ab/adduction
Elbow: Flexion, extension
Wrist: Flexion, extension, radial/ulnar deviation
Hands: Gross, lateral, palmar grasp patterns
Cognitive: Visual Scanning, Visual Saccades, Visual Motor Coordination, Proximal Stability, Co-Contraction, Targeting, Grading of movement
Modifications available: Adjustable resistance and handle angles- accommodates those unable to supinate to neutral
Buckle up as you race against opponents through cyberspace down winding highways dodging obstacles in the road. Steer with targeted shoulder or forearm movement working to increase active range while also refining motor control and improving reaction time.
Shoulder: Internal/external rotation
Forearm: Pronation, Supination
Cognitive: Reaction time, Left/Right Discrimination, Graded movement
Adjustable handle angle - accommodates those unable to supinate to neutral. Allows for wrist radial/ulnar deviation to turn left/right.
Customized movement selection - Could use any other movement pattern to control the car turning left/right
Addition of multi-movement control - Would allow for addition of obstacles/ramps/and the user could use pronation and supination to turn left/right and then use shoulder flexion rapidly to launch off ramp.
Index Finger: Extension, Abduction, Adduction
Thumb: Palmar Abduction/adduction,
Cognitive: Visual scanning, Visual Discrimination,
ADL (Activities of Daily Living) Awareness,
Sequencing, Left/Right Discrimination, Vocabulary Expansion
Teach your new robot friend what a day in the life of a child is like as you progress through the day. Visual and auditory directions prompt players, establishing daily routines, development of left/right sided awareness, visual scanning, isolated digit extension, and targeting of the upper body.
