Thread: WiiFit helps girl walk again

    WiiFit helps girl walk again

    A YOUNG Wexford girl has learned to walk again thanks to her doctors -- and a computer game.

    Nicole Cahill (10) from Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, took her first steps in four years years at a New York hospital late last year.

    Since returning home on December 14, Nicole has stunned family and friends with her progress and is now expected to walk unaided by the end of the year.

    "The Wii Fit has really helped. It's great because there are so many balancing and stretching exercises on it.
    source

    That's awesome. It's great to see kids get enthused about rehab.

    Us I can attest to that . . . .

    I had ACL surgery in Dec, 08. The PT's are using Fit & Sports to help me re-strengthen my knee/leg.
    It's been helping (rather HURTing ;-) ) to do both -
    strengthen and get my balance back.

    Since when is Wii Fit a "computer game"? Those people need to get their facts straight.

    If I've helped you, just give that button a click.

    This article is UK-based. A lot of the mainstream press there refer to all video games as "computer games," it's just a trend/lingo there.
