Music Glove Hand Rehabilitation Program

Music Glove Hand Rehabilitation has proven to be effective therapy to improve hand function.

Music Glove Hand Rehabilitation

Touch of Health Rehab’s Certified Hand Therapist and OT Kelsey Zamoyski shown using Flint’s rehabilitation Music Glove to work with a patient at our Sunny Isles facility.

 

Music Glove hand therapy has been proven to increase finger mobility within 2 weeks.
The glove is equipped with multiple sensors that exercise a patient’s fingers while playing a computer-based game.
A floating musical note appears on the screen and the patient must perform pinching motions when prompted.
Unlike other devices that exercise the finger muscles only, this one also retrains the mind.
In essence, it initiates neuroplasticity, the process used by your brain to rewire itself after injury.
The more the game is used, the better your brain will be at controlling hand motion.

It has been effectively used to treat the following conditions:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Neurologic and muscular injury
  • Developmental disability

The University of California, Irvine conducted a study with chronic stroke patients concluding that people with severe hand impairment quantified by a Box and Block score of 7 significantly improved hand and finger motion.

Interesting enough, it is a self motivating tool too. People actually enjoy using it.

Also significant,  Music Glove Hand Rehabilitation because of its repetitive nature, is especially effective in the first months after stroke when the brain plasticity is higher.

Touch of Health Physical Rehabilitation offers the Music Glove Therapy at our Sunny Isles Beach location.
