Wii-based Movement Therapy for stroke rehabilitation

Wii-based Movement Therapy for stroke rehabilitation

Neuroscience Research Australia’s Dr Penelope McNulty is using Wii-based movement therapy to help those living with stroke related disabilities regain use of their affected limbs.

The focus of Neuroscience Research Australia, or NeuRA, has always been on neuroscience. We conduct clinical and laboratory research into neurological, psychiatric and psychological disorders.

    Hi Alessandro. This video is from our old wireless telemetry system. The belt holds the data transmitter and the laces are the connectors between the transducers and the transmitter. Our new system is completely wireless and so much easier both for the patient and the researchers.

    This video has given me some hope for a close friend of mine dealing with ALS. I’d like to know if there have been any new developments in using game technology for non-stroke patients. I’ll email you directly about this.
    Thanks so much for some encouraging news! Those two-week results are amazing!

    Three years ago, my right arm was numb, and my shoulder was completely flaccid. Way down on Australia, you’ve been treated a healthy stroke heroes! The 27 days?! Wow. I was in my hospital bed. Way to go, McNutty!
