I am trying to get more time with the robot machine at my hospital. You watch a monitor and play video games while a special robot joystick measures your movements and results. I found it very helpful, but I was in a research study that ended.
The hospital scheduler asked me, “Why do you want extra time on the robot machine?”
I said, “Have you ever seen Occupational Therapy? You move blocks and cones and weights around for an hour at a time. It’s useful, but it gets boring after awhile. I’d much rather play video games with the same results.”
We’ll see if that works. Robots are the future.
