Special Wii Software designed for Therapy

Kaasa Health GmbH of Düsseldorf has developed software - Wiiware- specifically for use in a clinical setting. This program focuses on balance training making that often boring and monotonous work fun. Building on the fact that the balance board is a force plate capable of extracting data about one's center of balance and ability to shift weight, this specifically designed game environment helps those with balance issues improve. Since balance ability influences fall risk in seniors, playing this video game might be a key component in reducing the occurrence of falls and the associated physical, emotional and monetary costs in elders. Using Wii Fit in therapy was shown to improve balance and ability to walk with a walker when a group of therapists added 4 sessions of Wiihab to a regular therapy program. Now, with the development of specific software program for rehab, more therapists may begin to incorporate Wii into the clinical setting.
