Beamz & Tobii
ApplicationsBeamz challenged the client’s multi-tasking skills, motor planning and sequencing skills, as well as encouraging accurate visual motor skills for reaching to break the beam. [The patient] smiled more than he ever does with motor training activities! I was impressed that when his favored upper extremity tired, he was motivated to use non-favored upper extremity to continue making music.
