    Using the Wii for rehab and physiotherapy

    Hospitals around the country are adapting to new technology, introducing the Nintendo Wii gaming console as a new mean for patients to do physiotherapy and work on addiction issues. The Wii consoles have already been deployed in hospitals in Missouri, Illinois, and North Carolina. Good idea?

    No, because why would they need it in a hospital if the people cant even get up in use it if theyre sick.

    I think its amazing how people who are very sick can still play and enjoy the Wii because of the simplicity in the controls.

    I think its good, it helps them with the recovery process in some cases, or it could. Even if the help is done emotionally by playing the Wii and not necessarily physical, its still help.
