Ratings and Reviews
Great app for dexterity training
As an occupational therapist who works with the geriatric population, I really appreciated incorporating the exercises on this app for the dexterity training. I did not personally use the mobility or speech portions; however, based on research I’ve seen in the past on the benefit of metronome use for people who suffer from Parkinson’s and related diseases, I believe this would be a great way to improve mobility skills. I used this app in a clinic setting for many clients and they all enjoyed and felt the benefit from the dexterity training. Some of the elderly people did have a hard time with the pinch exercises due to lack of experience with technology and it did take some time for them figure out how to place their fingers on the screen and how much pressure to apply. Maybe using it on an iPad, with a bigger screen, rather than an iPhone, would have been better. Overall, this exercise program has great potential to help people who suffer from Parkinson’s disease. I continue to recommend it to any of my clients who do have an iPhone or iPad.
Would love if it was made for a clinic setting and could track multiple clients progress.
