MineFit TidBit: High Fives for Brain-Hand Coordination to Reduce Injury and Improve Dexterity

Posted By Darrell Smith, Friday, August 12, 2016
Recent research has worked to examine the visual cues people use to assess object properties before they grasp or otherwise manipulate objects. This body of work has vast implications in the realm of Brain-Hand Coordination, avoiding hand injuries, and therapy techniques for people with chronic or acute hand problems.  

Test your “Handiness” by performing the following drill:

(1) Place your hands on your desk like you were going to play the piano, as if there was a tennis ball under your hand.  
-Move all fingers one by one 
-Then move only the pinkies of the R and L hands.  
-Finally, move only the Left Thumb and the Right Pinky simultaneously...Try it with your eyes closed.  
-Then, try your Left Index Finger and your Right Ring finger. Close your Eyes.

Want another couple of  challenges?  

(2) Tie your shoes with your eyes closed.
  
(3) Draw a picture of a flower with your non-dominant hand, then try it with each hand, with your eyes closed.
