BLOG—A medical Rehabilitation hospital in Columbus Ohio is using the Nintendo Wii as Physical Therapy to help patients recover from injuries like stroke, spinal cord trauma, and damage to the brain. Finding a console this holiday season will undoubtedly be difficult for many would-be Wii owners. Some want it to play with their families while others just want to bowl their hearts out on their own. In the case of 51-year old Franklin Perry, his desire to score a Wii this Christmas stems from his recent habitual use—that is, using it to help recover from a recent stroke.
That’s right, Perry is one of many patients at the Ohio State University Medical Center’s Dodd Hall Rehabilitation Hospital that uses the Nintendo Wii as a form of therapy. According to an article in Reuters, Perry is utilizing the Wii under hospital supervision to help rebuild muscles in his immobilized right side.
