Wiihab for burn victims

The BBC has reported that the Wii has therapeutic value for improving flexibility and range of motion for burn victims. Wii is being used as a complementary therapy technique in the East Grinstead Hospital, which is a regional center for treating patients with burns in the southeast regions of England. Burns specialists at the hospital noted several advantages to using the Wii, such as patients' enjoyment of the activity and the ability of patients to continue using the Wii at home once they are discharged.
