This comfortable fleece pocket is designed to isolate either arm during physical therapy. The functional arm is placed in the pocket, effectively isolating it so as to give the arm in need of therapy a chance to work. The wrap fits around the entire torso and is secured by a wide swath of Velcro[R], which allows for comfortable adjustments.

This spinning disc toy encourages children to practice balance and coordination while sitting, kneeling, squatting, or standing. A built-in lever changes the angle of the platform, increasing the difficulty of play by increasing the slope. The child controls the spinning by shifting body weight from side-to-side, and the slope can be adjusted gradually during play.

This is an optical keyboard that does not require finger pressure. Fingers are detected by a matrix of infrared sensors. The optical sensors also enable the keyboard to be personalized to the individual with only the keys needed, an optional touch pad to one side, special hot keys, and decorations such as names, colors, text, or scenery.
