Since its launch last year, the Nintendo Wii has opened the video game market up to everyone, not just young men.
According to Reuters, a hospital in Alberta has been using the Wii to assist those recovering from strokes, and spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries, for the past four months.
Occupational Therapist Robbie Winget told Reuters the console helps patients build balance, coordination, endurance and upper and lower body strength.
