Wii Fit - Therapy for Fall Prevention - WiiHab

The Saturday Evening Post online published a piece by Peter Perry about the potential of Wii Fit for improving balance. Take a moment to read about the research Kathleen Bieryla of Bucknell University has completed. Kathleen, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, focused on improving clinical measures of balance in older adults by using activities in Wii Fit.
In the same Saturday Evening Post piece, Bryce Taylor, MSPT explains three of his trademark Wii-Hab therapeutic exercises using Wii Fit to improve back health and increase core muscle strength.
