Clevy for fine motor skills
What is fine motor skills
Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists. We rely on these skills to do key tasks in school, at work, and in everyday life. Fine motor skills are complex, they involve a coordinated effort between the brain and muscles. We use fine motor skills when we hold a pencil or use a keyboard.

Why assistive technology matters
We believe in the future of assistive technology to support people with fine motor skills. Many people globally are affected by a form of fine motor skills and have to depend on the help of others. Being able to have access to the digital world can therefore be a huge benefit to them, as it can provide independence and make them feel more involved.
