The wring is a assistive technology device used by patients with fine motor issues in Occupational therapy to improve function and provide musical feedback initiated by strengthening exercises
Wring is a device that enables patients to improve fine motor hand function while receiving real-time auditory musical feedback. The Wring can be used as a stand alone device to play music or as an interface to control and interact with game interfaces through therapeutic hand exercise. There is a great need to provide feedback to patients in OT or PT for fine motor issues. Musical feedback pairs to finger press based on music-supported therapy. Rehab is ongoing often occurring outside of a clinical environment. Patients benefit from feedback based on accuracy of touch to improve hand function. Wring contains a TinyDuino, sensors, and a speaker.
