Recovery Tips - Video Games

Keeping your brain stimulated is key to recovery. Exercise, problem solving, and memory tasks are all parts of that process. The Nintindo Wii offers stimulation in each of those areas, and a whole lot of fun into the mixture.

The Nintindo Wii stands out because of the many games in which the system requires you to actually get up and move around. The system comes with one set of sports games and a joystick 'nunchuck' set up that occupies your hands and allows you to participate in video game versions of sports favorites like bowling, tennis, boxing, and golf. These are great fun activities that encourage accident victims to work to improve hand eye coordination, and the other brain stimulation activities previously mentioned.


The Wii Fit is another great recovery assistance tool. This Nintindo Wii add on set contains a Wii FIt Balance Board, and a game disk that contains a variaty of fitness games. You first log in to track weight and Body Mass Index, set up goals, and learn your Wii Fit Age. This is based on the weight, your posture, and your reaction to different balance tests. You can also have digital trainers guide you through yoga, you can participate in a variety of cardio games, balance games, and reaction tests. Best of all....It's FUN!
