Clients create the music by activating upper extremity exercise devices that are connected to a synthesizer through a computer The bands choose the songs they would like to play and meet twice a week for I hi to practice. The 8-week program often concludes with a public performance. The music program is intended to motivate client participation in physical rehabilitation while promoting self-esteem, emotional expression, and peer support li is based on the model of occupational performance and the theory of purposeful activity. To date, 33 persons have taken part. Client, therapist and public response has been positive because this program highlights the abilities of persons with SCI, thereby encouraging their reintegration into the community.
