Rehabilitation therapists have a long history of using innovative and entertaining activities to help patients reach therapeutic goals. In this one-day course, therapists will be introduced to the Nintendo Wii as a therapeutic tool which can help patients increase strength, balance, endurance, flexibility and hand-eye coordination. Additionally, participants will learn appropriate adaptations and modification for Wii play in various patient populations, particularly older adults. Course will include case studies and practical considerations for patient safety.
