Orientate”, is a Laterality Recognition Program that forms part of a Graded Motor Imagery, a rehabilitation program based on clinical trials to treat pain and movement problems.
Laterality recognition or Left / Right Discrimination are known to occur in stroke patients and patients with CRPS/RSD and phantom limb pain. The ability to identify Left or Right is important for normal recovery. Orientate” laterality software provide images of hands and feet in different positions and postures, on nine levels, totalling over one thousand five hundred images.
Research shows the ability to identify Left and Right is slower and less accurate in people suffering from pain, and there is a direct link to the ability to correctly recognize Left and Right to the level of pain. Orientate” has been developed to measure this ability, and help retrain the brain.
Stroke patients may lose the ability to recognize a complete left or right hemisphere. As part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program Orientate” will help to retrain the brain to see and recognize this missing hemisphere and aid the remapping of the brain.

Ratings and Reviews
Some of the hand positions show only parts of the fingers and none of the thumbs. Not enough time is given. It is so unfair that you lose confidence in it being worthy of any value. The unfairness is so great that it actually is a disincentive for the patient to even want to take it, not to mention what happens if you have one hand that is impaired and you can’t hold the device and select the answer at the same time.
Cannot adjust the speed so it is useless
This app would be great IF you could adjust the display speed. People who have had strokes generally don't think as swiftly as the average person, so if I cannot manually adjust the speed to suit the patient's cognition speed, then the app is basically useless to me. Too bad, because it looks very useful otherwise.
A good challenge
Don’t know if it helps my pain. Only tried the free level & got most of them right. Maybe it could help my dropfoot?
