The Nintendo Wii console has been incorporated into the Riley Hospital’s Tom C. Maynor Rehabilitation Center rehab program for patients who have suffered a stroke.

The fact that the Wii requires the use of the whole body, balance and hand-eye coordination is ideal for stroke patients. The rather low price of the Nintendo Wii opens doors to other uses of the gaming console.

The $249 Wii console is still a hard to find item online. I wonder when that finally changes.
