Canada starts using Nintendo Wii consoles in hospitals

Glenrose Rehabilitation hospital in Canada recently started using Nintendo Wii consoles to help it’s patients with movement or balance issues, and so far, this method has proved to be successful:

Don Simoneau, an occupational therapist at the Glenrose, said he has used the technology on only about five patients in the past two and a half months, but already the 200 hospital therapists are clamouring to be involved with the Wii equipment.

I think that the hospitals where I live are light years behind such innovation, but it’s nice to see console games helping people get better. And Nintendo gets, yet again, free publicity ;)
