About this app

Orientate”, is a Laterality Recognition Program that forms part of a Graded Motor Imagery, a rehabilitation program based on clinical trials to treat pain and movement problems.

Laterality recognition or Left / Right Discrimination are known to occur in stroke patients and patients with CRPS/RSD and phantom limb pain. The ability to identify Left or Right is important for normal recovery. Orientate” laterality software provide images of hands and feet in different positions and postures, on nine levels, totalling over one thousand five hundred images.

Research shows the ability to identify Left and Right is slower and less accurate in people suffering from pain, and there is a direct link to the ability to correctly recognize Left and Right to the level of pain. Orientate” has been developed to measure this ability, and help retrain the brain.

Stroke patients may lose the ability to recognize a complete left or right hemisphere. As part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program Orientate” will help to retrain the brain to see and recognize this missing hemisphere and aid the remapping of the brain.

Like all therapies laterality recognition dose not always show immediate results. The rate and amount of recovery much depends on the extent of the damage, and the intensity and duration of the therapy you receive. Recovery also is likely to be influenced by personality, life experiences and coping styles. Motivation to recover is a key factor in obtaining an optimal level of rehabilitation.

App is easy to use. Feedback on success over last 10 tests is shown graphically and text. Instructions on when to progress to the next level clear. Level one is free. Level two is $1.99. Level three is $2.99. I am still on Level one as there are six different challenges to master before moving to Phase two.

I can't properly rate the app as I only used it once, but I couldn't find any other place for "customer service." As I previously stated I'm a first time user, & was reading everything I can before the app. It was reccommended by PT for my CRPS in my knee, which this app doesn't address but the concept is still helpful. On your about page you have words like yarning instead of yawning, that needs to be change. There are a few more edits needed, but that jumped off the page.

The developer of this program misses a basic understanding of human nature. The success check or failure X after each image triggers powerful emotional programming in the brain of "being right" and 'being wrong", which prevents some from completing the exercises from neutrality. Even light distress around right/wrong will cause a brain to fire dozens of times between images. I'm not sure how they could miss this. It completely skews the results. Note to developer: simply tabulate score at end.
