I guess a couple people don't think so. How can anyone disagree with that? Idiots.

What kind of sick A-hole disagrees with you saying "hope he recovers"?

On topic: Awesome that games can be used to rehab people. I think it would be awesome to create specific software using motion controls so people could do physical therapy from home. I've thought about this a lot since my grandmother had to travel from home to a physical therapy office for treatments. Having a program at home would be awesome.

Ironically, he was put into hospital from a car crash /s

Good on him. I love it when they show games in a positive light, rather than the usual doom and gloom by the super nannies of this world.

No, he wasn't injured in a car crash, he fell in his home.

This is great.
When you're down with a massive, life changing injury such as this, any little thing that can boost your morale is of huge benefit.
I'm glad this is helping him, and improving his quality of life.
Plus, the lucky guy gets to play on a pretty slick setup. Can't hate on that :)
