This is your hand. This is your hand on occupational therapy.
I have mentioned the Edward Scissorhands device that occupational therapy uses to improve my ability to extend my fingers. And here's a picture of it.
Another gadget that outpatient therapy uses is a device for measuring how rapidly I can recognize lights at the edges of my field of vision and respond to them. I think that it looks like a computer from the original Star Trek television series.
With my occupational therapist, Heather:
At the end of this session, I did my best to sound like Scottie and say to the therapist I've reset the dilithium crystals, captain."
