Wii-habilitation, health games get $2 million study grant(May 29,2008 CNET News.com)

The popular Nintendo device for playing games like virtual bowling or tennis has turned into a rehab tool at cutting-edge health care centers around the country. And now researchers at the University of South Carolina are turning the trend into a research project that will study exactly how well the Wii and other games can help stroke victims recover motor skills and overcome a fear of falling after their trauma.

Wii seems to stand in the spotlight worldwide as a rehabilitation tool.

And now researchers at the University in the United States are starting a research project that will study how well the Wii can help recovery of health.

I wanted the university in Japan to do such a research earlier than universities in the United States.
