Activities for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients

How Can HappyNeuron Pro Be Used for Brain Injury Rehabilitation?

 

HappyNeuron Pro can be used by licensed clinical professionals providing care to brain injury patients. Some examples of clinicians who work with brain injury patients include occupational therapists, psychologists, physical therapists and social workers. While each therapist may have their own therapeutic approach, they can use HappyNeuron Pro as a tool to help their clients practice cognitive skills.

 

HappyNeuron Pro offers a wide variety of digital content for clinicians to use during their therapy sessions with their clients combating brain injury. Common complications of brain injury include executive function deficits, memory complication, and social skill problems.

We Suggest the Following Writing Exercises for Stroke Patients:

The Towers of Hanoi

A digital version of the neuropsychological task, participants must configure rings in as few moves as possible. This exercise heavily targets strategy and other executive function skills.

I Remember You!

Using visual and verbal memory skills, participants must remember the identities of people presented to them and seat them properly at a table.

Catch the Ladybug!

Brain injury patients can be easily distracted. Using this exercise, clients can practice paying attention to relevant stimuli while ignoring extraneous objects in their environment.

Restaurant

In this exercise, participants will have to remember the orders of people seated at a table. This exercise can be made more complex by adding more guests, more orders, moving around guest position, including distraction orders, restrict time for memorization and have the option of a distraction task in between orders.

Secret Files

Participants must remember a path drawn on the screen and recreate it. This exercise is great for training memory and sequencing skills.

Gulf Stream

Watch and identify fish as they appear on the screen. Challenges visual and verbal memory in a fun way.

Heraldy

Like the knights of the Round Table, challenge your clients to view a crest and reconstruct the crest that they saw from memory! This exercise challenges a client’s visual memory, visual attention, and spatial reasoning.

Basketball in New York

Requires participants to be strategic and problem-solve to plan actions that lead to successful completion.

How Do We Fit Into Your Care Plan for Your Brain Injury Patients?

 

Brain injuries are treated by a team of medical professionals, as brain injury impacts a patient’s physical, mental, and cognitive well-being. Early rehabilitation can occur bedside and continue as the patient is well enough to be discharged to their home, or to a specialized care facility. Private practices through large hospitals and care homes integrate us as a tool to assist in rehabilitation post-injury.

 

For bedside intervention, a tablet or laptop can be used for the patient to use the software. For a larger setting outside of acute care, you can use tablets, laptops, or desktop computers. To do group work, you can connect an HDMI cord from the computer to a television screen to carry out a group session for brain injury survivors. Icebreakers for group settings include Split Words, Shapes and Colors, and Sleight of Hands. This can provide needed laughter and encourage patients to participate in therapy.
