    The usage of Nintendo Wii in Healthcare, and new research paper recently studied this usage, and it gives it the thumbs up. It does indeed help!

    There been few studies done before that some forms of video games can infact help people get better again faster, like from stokes.

    But now thanks to some solid research done by John Hopkins, it proves that the Nintendo Wii can help patients in intensive care.

    Doctors think it is the HAVING FUN that helps them thru the normally boring daily therapy, but they also say some video games can have negative effects if played outside of a supervised settings.

    Oh'well maybe the new age saying will be "Break Out the Wii Everyday" instead of the old "Have a Apple everyday"! :)
