Yes, the Hand Mentor Home can help by providing a series of task-guided stretching and passive range of motion exercises.

“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. Stroke Survivor
Don’t take our word for it. See what an actual OT thinks as she describes her experience seeing how the Hand Mentor has actually helped people, discusses how easy it is for stroke survivors to use, and how the device would be great for a home program. Hundreds of OTs and PTs around the country have provided similar feedback.

“One of the first things patients tell me when they use the Hand Mentor is that they immediately realize they are using their hand. That it’s their hand making the movements…They love the interaction with the games, and the fact that they’re able to participate…I absolutely think the Hand Mentor would be a wonderful part of a home program. I think it would engage the patient. Because of its ease of use very, little caregiver involvement is required. And it would allow a patient to get the active repetitive motions they need.”

Sharon B. Occupational Therapist
Yes it does work and has shown and proven to help thousands of stroke survivors. See what a stroke survivor has to say about his experience with the Hand Mentor.

“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.”

“The Importance of that observation is that it demonstrated to be possible that the use of the device, the Hand Mentor in this case, provides a therapeutic value, which is equivalent to that of a therapist, not to replace the therapist but equivalent to a therapist, and then has the potential for reducing the total cost required for therapy.”

The Hand Mentor Home helps fingers.

“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.”

Merri E. Stroke Survivor
Yes, the Hand Mentor helps people get many repetitions and hours of therapy, which are needed in many cases. The active assistance of the device helps simulate the actions of a skilled therapist, and the system also adjusts based on a user’s needs.

“I started using it for about a couple months, and I started immediately seeing improvement in my range in both hands as well as function… one of the activities I was apprehensive about beforehand was cooking. Never thought it was something even in my wildest dreams that I could attempt. As I started gaining more strength in my hand, not only the strength but the confidence to try new things that led me to be able to do more activities in my life.”

Customer Testimonials

“I think it’s user friendly when it’s specifically designed for your deficits. You do not have to be an IT person to use it. You don’t need to move it around after you get it setup…You set the goals with the staff, and you meet those small goals little by little. I think that’s important for a stroke survivor. I like the availability. You could exercise and work on your deficit as much as you want. You didn’t have to make an appointment. It was in your house. I like that. The ease of operation and the availability. I like that about it.”

Deborah St. Clair, Stroke Survivor

“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.”
