We gave the Veterans Medical Center in Salem, a Wii gaming system. Why the Wiii? The Wii was selected because of a recent trend in rehabilitation toward a new treatment technique known as “Wiihab.” Wiihab makes use of the gaming system’s unique, live motion play to offer patients a fun and less painful exercise medium.
The donation was made in conjunction with InjuryBoard, a trial lawyer group that represents victims of serious accidents. We all hope that our donations will ease the recovery of those in need and will help patients find enjoyment in an otherwise painful and difficult process.
Dan and I chose the VA because our veterans are used to being active. “It is so very important to encourage and aid in their rehabilitation process. This includes veterans of every age. It is our sincere hope that the Wii will provide a little bit of joy during their rehabilitation process. We are grateful for their service and want to say thank you.”
We would like to thank the VA for their hospitality, and the Veterans for their service.
