Study: Playing Nintendo Wii Video Games Improves Hand Function, Grip Strength in Children with Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy

Egyptian researchers suggest that Nintendo Wii video gaming, along with a standard care regimen, may improve grip strength and hand function as well as decrease hand stiffness in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.  Hemiplegic cerebral palsy, affecting up to 30% of people with cerebral palsy, is characterized by paralysis on one side of the body and often impacts the upper limbs and hands. 40 children aged 8-12 participated in the 12-week study, which included 40 minutes of Wii gaming for three days a week, in addition to their usual care. By the end of the study, researchers found that spasticity decreased, power grip and pinch grip strength increased, and hand function increased, compared to the control group.
