Medically reviewed by Liron Shnitzer, OT — written by PLAYWORK.



Practicing with the Smart PLAYBALL allowed the patient to practice independently for the first time and for significant periods, which is an important goal in rehabilitation along with improving independence and quality of life.

Patient background: 45 years old male, after a stroke with a diagnosis of global aphasia and a pelagic right hand.


Condition: Functionally – Needs light-moderate help with basic functions. In terms of instrumental functions, significant help required. The patient has difficulty performing cognitive/leisure practice completely independently.


Practice: You can see in the video how the patient manages to involve the plegic hand in the exercise and carry out weight bearing while maintaining the range of motion in the hand.



The ball allows a combination of motor and cognitive practice due to its being adaptive (suitable and compatible with level), easy to understand, prevents mistakes and increases a sense of success.


Result: Practicing with the ball allowed the patient to practice independently for the first time and for significant periods, which is an important goal in rehabilitation along with improving independence and quality of life.
