Exercises in Brave Teddy include hand therapy. It develops manual function, shaping, gripping, hand-eye control, and coordination between the right and left hand. The hand is an organ of the movement system. We can explore the world around us, communicate with others, and express ourselves. Gaining optimal function of the hand allows us perform every command from the brain, like independent activities of daily living (e.g. dressing, eating, writing, drawing, grasping etc.)
Hand therapy is recommended for children who:
- despite a certain age, they cannot perform activities for independent daily living.
- write poorly with utensils, reluctantly cut with scissors, and do not like to touch different textures.
- have problems with the coordination of hands during exercises.
- have reduced or increased muscle tone.
- have cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders.

Looking comprehensively at the patient, such activities are an important part of a holistic perception of working with the patient.
