Adaptations to compensate for upper extremity range of motion, strength and fine motor skills during daily activities. Huntington’s Disease is a progressive neurological disease that has no cure. The woman’s potential to improve range of motion, strength and fine motor skills is poor, but her prognosis to use adaptations to help her compensate for functional decline in these skills is better. The OT should not give the woman false hope that her skills will improve but should focus on a positive treatment plan of helping the woman to compensate using adaptations.
