OTD Eases Physical Therapy

Our bud Jamie Price of BaR2D2 fame has come up with a new device for encouraging physical therapy. His Occupational Therapy Device is a tabletop application that is meant to improve dexterity, hand/eye coordination and left/right brain interaction. A sort of advanced Simon, the user has special gloves and must touch whatever button is lit. Check out his project and instructions for making one.

(Thanks, Jamie)

I wonder what therapy conditions this device would be applied. Would it be for those with physical trauma such as those who have been in a bad car wreck or some other highly damaging accident, or could it also be applied to those born with mental disabilities who are lacking proper coordination to do such things as drive a car or even walk normally.
