Island Antics™ – Reconditioning and Motor Functions
Island Antics is designed for patients who need to work on reconditioning and motor functions, including therapeutic motions to exercise trunk control, functional reach, reaction time, fluid movements, postural control, coordination, and cross-body movements.
Island Antics is a fun world where patients are celebrated heroes for helping island citizens perform various tasks.
Island Antics promotes big, dynamic movements to help improve range of movement, internal cuing mechanisms for normal movement patterns, postural stability, and coordination. At the same time, it can help address impairments like resting tremor, postural instability, bradykinesia, hypokinesia, depressed moods, and loss of cognitive function (e.g., sustained attention, difficulty changing strategies quickly).

Motion Rehabilitation Activities
In the world of Island Antics, the patient is a giant hero that has been hired by a bustling oceanic city to perform various tasks.
Save the Seagulls™
Using trunk control, functional reach, and cross-body motions, the patient is tasked to fend off UFO drones poaching seagulls by tossing them back like frisbees.
Using trunk control, functional reach, and dynamic balance, the patient must reach out to help citizens cross a street that is blocked by a beached whale. The patient must reach out to pick up each citizen and follow the path visualization to place the citizen on the other side of the street.
Leaks and Levers™
Too many sea creatures are getting flushed and blocking pipes. Using shoulder flexion and extension, patients are tasked with pulling levers and carefully turning valves. Upon successfully turning the valves and pulling the levers, the sea creatures will be sent back to the sea.
Using functional reach and trunk movement, patients must reach out to pull the slingshot and send coconuts through the air onto floating cargo ships. Once the coconut is resting in the giant slingshot, the patient must reach forward and lean back while pulling arms back as far as possible. Upon completing that movement, the coconut will launch out in the sky, over the ocean, and onto the cargo ship. Utilize one or two hands to activate the slingshot. Slingshot paths can be created to be longer or shorter based on patient needs.
