Wii Fit Helps Paralysed Girl Walk Again

Wii Fit Helps Paralysed Girl Walk Again

A 10-year-old girl left paralysed by a virus four years ago is learning to walk again thanks to her doctors and a copy of Wii Fit, the Herald.ie reports.

The girl took her first steps in four years at a New York hospital late last year. Now, back in her home town of Wexford, Ireland, the girl uses Wii Fit to help strengthen her legs and regain her balance.

“The Wii Fit has really helped. It’s great because there are so many balancing and stretching exercises on it,” said the girl’s mum. “The Wii has taken an awful lot of pressure off her as well.”

What a neat story, maybe I should pull my Balance Board out from under the couch and give it another whirl.
