This week, we explored a simple challenge faced during rehabilitation, also faced by some during training. When participants are learning to carry a cup steadily, sometimes the water spills out. Or sometimes, they drop a glass cup and it shatters.
While this is a realistic outcome to be expected in the real world, perhaps there can be an intermediate training environment that is more accepting, that does not result in a slippery wet floor or shattered glass. Perhaps a smart little cup that makes a gentle noise when you "spill", so that you can feel more comfortable training.
And when participants are really comfortable and have passed the test of the Dry Training Cup, they can progress on to the real cup.

And here's a story...

And so the simple development of the Dry Training Cup aims to allow a more gentle learning curve in the rehabilitation process, while participants "learn" to carry a cup of water steadily again.
In another domain of training and simulation, this could probably also be used for trainees to practise serving tea / coffee / trays of food smoothly.
Are there other forms of rehabilitation that you think similar ideas could be helpful?
