    Wow i just finished reading an article about the Wii and its actions,
    apparently some guy ended up in hospital with swolen joints that had to be operated on.
    When playing tennis and such energy from the body is sent up the arm and into the bat/club/raquet which then passes on energy to the ball which causes it to move through the air. when playing wii energy from the body is sent up the arm and into the wiimote, however there is no ball to transfer this kinetic energy to so the energy is rebounded back through the wiimote and down the arm where its released in the weakest parts of the arm (i.e. the spaces between joints) apparently this builds up a fluid in the joints and can cause swelling and pain.

    :yikes: man i guess the wiis not so good for exersize lol! however this aint gonna stop me playing it :lol: :p

    Oh, bull! The guy did it by being dumb. He's blaming it on the Wii. Yawn, everyone tries to sue Ninendo.

    LOL.... maybe weighted gloves would help it a bit? or don't swing so hard.

    following through would help too.

    That's crazy.
    Maybe it's just really rare. Did the guy have any other past pain from his joints before playing the Wii?

    Yeah, I think it's the excessive play, otherwise, wouldn't we all be getting injured and complaining? :lol:

    Also, do we know how old this guy is?

    Ok folks. Remember to stretch every muscle before turning the wii on. In this persons case seems like they need to spend a little more "personal" time and this would have not been a problem. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Hahaha!! I hope you dont believe this ****... according to this all baseball players would have severely messed up joints in there arms, wrists and shoulders.

    Do you have any idea how much players swing and miss the ball while batting??? and theres other things that i could go on about but its not worth it.

    it's funny the wii's been out for so long and you havent even thought of anything like this, then some guy figures he can make money

    if your joints are seizing from minor motion with the wiimote, maybe you shouldnt be inside playing video games either

    Me and my brother got blisters on our palm's of our hands from Mario Party 1 on the N64, if I remember correctly it was the boat game where you have to stay in the middle of a river and try and stop the other team from pusing you to the side by spinning around the joystick.

    Also doesn't Wii Sports tell you to take a break after like a couple of games, if I remember...
