Burns victims and those with hand injuries are being offered time on a games console to help with their recovery.
The Nintendo Wii is being used in hospitals across the south east of England after doctors found it could help bring back flexibility to these patients.
This is because it makes users act out all the physical movements involved in sports such as tennis, golf and boxing.
The consoles, which were donated to the hospital, will be used to complement part of a patient's conventional physiotherapy treatment. Those who own a console will also be given advice on how they can continue their therapy at home.
