i dont know if the wii will help bulid arm strenth, i would use dumbells for arm excerises or a pull up bar
I find myself in a wheelchair after being hit by car. Does anyone have advice, experience on using wii for therapy? I need help building mobility and strength in my arms and legs. I would really appreciate any help or advice on additional hardware or games. I don't have much gaming experience.
At this point I can't lift my arms above my head without any weight. I went out yesterday and bought a wii and the Sports Resort. I think the tennis and canoe games will help with range of motion. Thanks for the well wishes.
how old r u? it also depends. i wouldnt buy non-active games
"I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road"
I'm 43 yrs. old. I was walking across the street and got hit by a 2002 Grand Am going about 40 mph. I was in the hospital for a month and a half. I broke both my arms, both my legs, 8 ribs and the 5th cervical vertabra (luckily it didn't do any spinal cord damage) This was about 5 months ago.
i was in a severe motorcycle accident a few years ago. i find the wiifit, wii sports, and other games great for range of motion.

try the boxing workouts the one where you dige the balls, Id recommend that for your condition maybe get advice from your doctor I mean you dont want to over do it and cause more damage to your body. So before you do anything have a talk with someone who knows about these things.
