GRASP Arm and Hand Fine Motor Skill Training (GRASP)

Arm and Hand Fine Motor Skill Training (GRASP)

GRASP (Graded Repetitive Arm Supplementary Program) is a 10-week program, designed for people living with a stroke who have difficulty using their arm and hand. The goal of GRASP is to promote safe and effective upper limb use, foster self-management and increase quality of life. 

The GRASP exercises will be taught, practiced and progressed each week in a group setting, and participants continue their daily exercises at home, independently or with the help of a caregiver and/or family memberThe participation of a caregiver and/or family member is highly encouraged as this support increases improvement and involvement with patients. Some exercises include range of motion, strengthening, and weight-bearing exercises as well as functional and fine-motor skill training. 

Some arm and hand movement of the stroke-affected side is required to participate in this program, and it is highly recommended to begin this program within four weeks of your stroke for best results. 

Location: Vancouver - Templeton Park.
