Once again, the Wii is making headlines! This time its in the Forest City Summit and Britt News Tribune (I'm even exactly sure where that is)...
Basically the editor features a local continuing care facility, Westview. She interviews a restorative therapist, Joey Units about how they are using the Wii in their facility.
After a few weeks of "getting used" to the new technology, now about 15 residents play Wii daily!
Units suggests that some of the benefits of the Wii include improved range of motion, cardio work out, and helps to release endorphins (which he says, helps you stay happy!). Additionally, the players are loosing weight- one resident lost 30 lbs last year.
