The game play is simple, just match the pattern with your two hands. Try it and see how challenging this simple task can be.

The idea for this app came from research related to bimanual (i.e., two handed) motions. The REEDlab at the University of South Florida has been examining how bimanual motions can be used to train people to become more coordinated and for stroke rehabilitation. Bimanual motions are also vital for brain development, which is one of the reasons why it is important for babies to crawl – the alternating hand motions teach the two sides of the brain to work together. Similarly, in stroke rehabilitation, these motions help retrain the brain by using the healthy side motions to guide the impaired side motions. So, using this app can be both fun and beneficial to your coordination.
