William “Bill” Grover came to The Recovery Project after suffering a stroke that affected the right side of his body and left him unable to lift his right arm. This had a debilitating impact on his ability to perform tasks like gripping or picking up objects, cutting food, tying his shoes or zipping/buttoning clothing. Through therapy at The Recovery Project, Bill sought to regain functionality of his right arm so he could perform these tasks independently again and also return to work.
Bill’s therapists used a number of different exercises and treatments to help him achieve his goals. This included incorporating functional activities into his treatment, utilization of the RTI 300 cycle and Myopro device, and functional electrical stimulation activities for fine motor skill development. They also practiced skilled manual techniques with his shoulder.
