We took our patients “parachuting”. Due to the inclement weather this day we moved our activity indoors.
This activity included a variety of areas addressed including BUE coordination, hand grip/grasp, ROM, sitting/standing balance, initiation, motor planning, visual perception, socialization, competitiveness, and the list goes on…
To change it up we added the beach ball and encouraged them to not allow the ball to hit the ground.
We also had therapist run under the parachute when it was raised up to encourage overhead movements/reaching as well as teamwork.
