What is MusicGlove?
MusicGlove is a hand therapy device that is clinically proven to improve hand function in 2 weeks.
It works by motivating users to perform hundreds of therapeutic hand and finger exercises while playing an engaging musical game.
How do you use it?
To use the device, you simply put the MusicGlove on your hand, plug it into your personal laptop or Flint tablet, and press play.
Then, follow along and make the appropriate pinching movements when each musical note floats down the screen.

What is FitMe? - the home therapy tool designed to help you retrain your brain.
FitMi was designed specifically to help people with a neurologic injury improve their strength and dexterity.
FitMi contains two wireless pucks and a therapy app that picks exercises for you tailored to your stage of recovery. As you improve, the FitMi exercises and difficulty levels increase to optimize your recovery.
