OSU "Wee-Search"

Puppy has recently started a Physical Therapy research (or "wee-search" as they like to call it) for infants who have had a stroke either prior to, or at birth. They are focusing on the social and motor development of these infants as they develop. We have exercises to do every day, and then every other week we head up to the OSU campus where he does a PT session in the lab. The first 15 minutes or so are chair work, where they try to get him to respond to different stimuli as well as reach for different toys.

On his head and hands he has trackers. Through these they can track his movements and speed on the computer. He also does floor work, similar to "typical" PT. Yes, the chair looks like a torture device, but be assured he didn't seem to mind it!
