What Were We Asked?
We were asked whether there was any evidence about the effectiveness of the ‘Meditouch’ rehabilitation systems. In particular, we were asked about the effectiveness of the HandTutorTM.
The devices are said to work alongside specialist rehabilitation software to "allow patients with upper and/or lower extremity movement dysfunction to practice intensive virtual functional task training of single and multi joints".
There is some interest in the HandTutor™ device provided by Meditouch, with the NHS giving it some consideration. However there is limited evidence of its effectiveness and further research appears to be necessary.
