Nursing researcher uses Nintendo Wii to address cancer-related fatigue

EAST LANSING, Mich. — With the support of a $379,741 grant from the National Cancer Institute and the Nintendo Wii game system, nursing researcher Amy Hoffman aims to help lung cancer patients reduce fatigue and get more exercise as they transition from the hospital to the home after surgery. (Culture, Nintendo, Wii)

This is kinda cool. Sounds like some progress has been made. Admittedly, i saw the title and thought this was a joke. I love my wii, but never thought it would be used for lung cancer recovery. I would assume that more efficient means to the goal are out there, but hey why not just pick up a used wii for 90 bucks? (along with that grant money)

I concur
Especially when gaming is used to help people.
