Nintendo Wii Balance Boards may be on the Christmas wish lists of many children this year. But for kids with spastic hemiplegia, a type of cerebral palsy, the game has shown to be an effective form of therapy according to researchers from Chile. Published in the European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, a new study analyzed 32 cerebral palsy patients randomly selected to receive six weeks of either “Wii-therapy” or standard physiotherapy sessions. Compared to patients who received standard physiotherapy, Wii-therapy “significantly improved standing balance in children and adolescents with CP,” the authors wrote in their report. Another perk? The program is easy to transfer to physiotherapists and rehabilitation centers.
