The Nintendo Wii has become a household name but not necessarily considered in relation to adults with movement disorders. Over the past four years we have been working with groups of people with Parkinson’s, stroke survivors, adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to find ways of using the Nintendo Wii as one way of enhancing movement skills.
We have a room dedicated to this with resources for up to 8 people at any one time. Our aim is to guide the person towards games which can help them work on the areas they need to develop rather than only using movements they can achieve. By doing this the person has a tool they can use within their own home environment to not only ensure a high level of activity but also to gain a renewed enjoyment of games and movements.
This service is FREE for people attending adult conductive rehabilitation sessions and is a part of our wider Reablement services.
