Wii Therapy

Neil's PT back at Kessler 1 actually recommended Wii Fit to supplement his therapy at home. We had some fun today heading soccer balls and trying to figure out how to execute a proper ski jump. Because the game wasn't designed for brain injured individuals Neil needs a little assistance, but I think it will be a great addition to our home repertoire of activities. Do you think our insurance will let us submit the purchase for reimbursement? ;-)

Insurance should pay as it's a whole lot cheaper than therapy outside the home. Get the dr. to write a script for it. I do know for a fact that nursing homes use WII too.

We have WII Fit at our home and I can tell you's not easy to dodge those virtual soccer balls or those cleats! I still can't get the ski jump and end up tumbling down the virtual mountain, but it's fun! I hope Neil is enjoying it too. He continues to amaze! We'll be keeping him in prayer especially on Tuesday - along with the surgeon and other health workers.
