Wii-Hab Adds Fun To Injury Recovery
One of the newest, most unique therapies featured at Victoria Medical Park is "Wii-Hab," incorporating the Wii Game System into both physical and occupational treatment sessions. Included is the use of assistive technology and environmental modifications that can be made to assist individuals with physical impairments to play and enjoy the Wii with others.
The Wii has been used in nursing homes and other facilities and therapists are just now discovering the potential for this innovative therapy.
"Wii-Hab gives our patients the opportunity to increase overall health, meet rehabilitation goals, and bond with family members, all at the same time."
Jill Piazza, PT, DPT - Director of Health and Performance
To quote a recent study, "As a group, the subjects improved and retained gains made in range of motion, speed, and isolated use of the fingers. These changes translated to improvements in the real-world outcome measures."
In fact, one of our own has seen the benefits of Wii-Hab in her own father. Nicole Scheiman shared, "My dad, who has Parkinson's, plays the Wii every day and remarkably is now 74 and is doing amazing...no falls at all. I think it has really improved his coordination from a full body standpoint, balancing on one leg while raising his arm for bowling and using his FMC for the controls, while, having cognitive stimulation that is fun!"
