Wii Benefits Across the Life Span

Students worked together to create a video touting the benefits of Wii-Hab. In this snappy video, viewers get an idea of how Wii is used to encourage improved muscle strength and flexibility in adults.

Children also benefit from using the Wii in therapy. The blog entry posted on October 5, 2009 shares with readers a story about Wii use in a classroom as an addition to traditional therapy. News station KEPR CBS 19 in Pasco, Washington posts a video of Wii being used in a school setting by therapists to improve coordination and balance.

Read Lon Thornburg’s great blog to learn more about creative uses of Wii with children who have developmental disabilities.
