I’ve been using the electronic arm machine consistently. It is terribly dull: 2 hours a day. My hand has definitely improved. The only problem is that the machine has given me a mild electric burn on my arm. So now I have a few days off while my skin stops being red.
The things we do for hand function. Any other examples?
Our baby is very interested in bright colored balls. He crawls around our living room, pushing and throwing them, often for a half an hour at a stretch. He is getting good at kicking them too. I do my leg exercises, kicking balls back to him. Multitasking.
Yesterday I picked up a cup with my bad hand and delivered it to my son. It was only later that I realized that I had done so without thinking about it. Before I had to stare at objects and order my fingers to position themselves around them. The automatic movement means my brain is relearning, reorganizing.
I have been using my electronic hand device for 2 hours a day for a couple of months now. My Occupational Therapist sees a difference in my hand and fingers. Me too. Science research says half a year more for me to have big active changes in my hand. Patience of Job.
