Back of Senior Takes Part in Wiihabilitation I already knew that senior citizens would rather play the Wii over bridge, but did you know that Wiihabilitation is also taking the country by storm? For James Mann, a patient at Wake Med Health Park in Raleigh, N.C., playing the Nintendo Wii is not only a great source of fun, but it's also helping him recover from a stroke. Shown here with recreational therapist Elizabeth Penny (see pics below), James takes part in games of Wii baseball to help him with his balance, coordination and the strengthening of his arms — how great is this?! And as soon as I get my hands on Wii Fit, I'll be working on my abs, butt and thighs!

I definitely think this is a cool use of the game. cbombnewell 9 years I've never even played one,definitely thinking about getting one after all the hype Caramel-Kisses 9 years SEE!! This is absolute proof that the Wii is the greatest next gen console. Sure, the 360 and PS3 have great HD grapics. But do they help old people? I think not!! beingtazim 9 years this is so great! :) wii fit will be so great for people in rehab (and others, like me who are too lazy to go to the gym). hotstuff 9 years I think this is so great! I mean regular rehab can be boring so this is fantastic. Wait until Wiifit comes out!!! I'm sure they'll find some great use for that!
