Reply To: EMG or not
Thanks for your response. I do use the Theraputty at home and during my OT. I remove pennies and place them back. For now I’m using the medium (green) but I hope to progress to the blue soon. I can see the improvements with my pinch strength which is very helpful in my daily functions. I was told by my OT therapist that recovery would be from proximal to distal, so we started by strength training for my shoulders, biceps and triceps. We combined strength training with electrical stimulation when we noticed movement in the wrist. That is where I am now trying to get movement and strength to my hands especially the fingers. I still do my upper body training but with more focus on my fine motor movement.
