Seated PWR! Twist - Seatbelt

Putting on your seatbelt is something many people do multiple times a day. However, Parkinson's can reduce your mobility, making this a difficult task. Follow along with Olivia as she uses the seated PWR! Twist to help reduce rigidity and complete this every day task.

Hello, I'm Olivia. I'm a student physical therapist and I want to talk about the seated PWR! Twist today. So here's what the move looks like. And it's beneficial in our daily lives because they're things that we do that requires this amount of twisting, like reaching for our seatbelt, and pulling it across really getting all of that twist in. And it can also help with decreasing your rigidity and other things in your daily life.
