Description

Dexteria was designed to be combined with iOS’s multi-touch screen feature. The hand and finger activities improve dexterity and handwriting, as well as strength and control. It has been declared effective by multiple research studies, including a study published in the Journal of Hand Therapy by Huntington University in 2016.

 

Overview

Instead of long, tedious amounts of time spent on the app’s features, the developers recommended the exercises be performed regularly in short sessions. It features an automatic tracking feature that’s useful for the patient and many others. The exercises are intended to speed recovery times from injuries and strokes.

While the app may be used to improve things like handwriting in children and adults, it is has also shown to speed up the recovery times from various injuries, including strokes.”

Short Sessions

You don’t need to worry about deciding between abandoning your other daily commitments and including Dexteria in your schedule. The exercises are targeted at creating hand and finger movements across your iOS device in short bursts. Regularity and short sessions are the key to recovery through this app.

Tracking

The app automatically tracks your performance. Through the tracking feature Dexteria then creates user reports that you can use to see your progress. You can also share them with your doctors if you’d like their input.

Speed Up Recovery

While the app may be used to improve things like handwriting in children and adults, it is has also shown to speed up the recovery times from various injuries, including strokes. Occupational Therapists were consulted in the design process to ensure this beneficial feature.
