The Child:
Megan Sherwin, 6

The Challenge: One-sided weakness due to cerebral palsy makes it difficult for Megan to use her left hand.

The Treatment: A virtual-reality game that elicits left-arm movements to build
strength and control.

The Team: Dr. Darcy Fehlings, developmental pediatrician; Tom Chau, biomedical engineer; Sophie Lam-Damji, occupational therapist; William Li, engineering science student, University of Toronto.

The Results: A fun, low-cost, home-based therapy that children want to do!
