Therapists Continue Looking To Wii Games
The Nintendo Wii has certainly changed society in many ways. I’m not sure if anyone could have expected the impact this little system could possibly have had on the world, but I think it’s here to stay. I continually find articles claiming that the Nintendo Wii is an excellent therapy tool. The current article on NPR talks about how the Wii is being used by many therapists to help patients who are recovering from stroke or closed-head injuries. The Wii may not be my personal platform of choice, but it certainly furthers the fact that video games have plenty of positive things to offer society.
A game system popular with teens is finding its way into rehabilitation centers. The Nintendo Wii, controlled by the user’s movements, is now being used to help patients recovering from stroke or closed-head injuries.
Thanks for the tip Jennifer!
