Helen had a stroke that affected the right side of her body. The stroke immobilised her right hand.
After trialling the ableX, she could see some benefits straight away, and with the advice of her husband and physiotherapist she finally made the decision to buy.
Although originally right-handed, Helen is perfectly capable of playing the games with her left hand, using the bilateral ableX handlebar to guide her right hand. Her husband says that the family noticed a general improvement in her wellbeing and Helen noticed within a few weeks an increase in arm mobility particularly left to right.
Helen plays each day and particularly enjoys Mosquito Splat and Rebounce. She uses the heat map and scoreboard to check her progress.
