Therapy Tiles: like Twister, but for rehabilitation

Darren Murph

Although we assumed that spending time with a Wii was easily the best way to rehabilitate, Entertainment Robotics' Therapy Tiles are looking like a close second. Designed to help patients get motivated, moving about and regaining their strength / motor skills, this game consists of an electronic, interactive surface along with "control programs for the specific therapeutic treatment." Currently, the tiles are being used at the Sygehus Fyn Svendborg hospital in Denmark for rehabilitation of cardiac patients, but it sounds as if anyone interested can phone up the sales team for a quote of their own. Check out the read link for a plethora of photos along with a video demonstration.
