TUESDAY, July 3 (HealthDay News) -- Students with visible disabilities
"Helping Hands" at Rice University have developed Dino-Might, a controller/game designed for patients with cerebral palsy to use for physical therapy.
We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Jedd Hafer, of Love & Logic® and asked him some of our questions. Jed's one of those people that you start talking to and feel like you've known him forever.
Video games may not be as bad for us as our mothers told us. The latest foray into the virtual realm stems from the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, citing that targeted rehabilitation of patients with Cerebral Palsy can be achieved through the use of active video games (Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 Kinect, Playstation Move, etc.).
We appreciate the excellent feedback, and are making changes based on the input from our incredible and highly intelligent group of Beta Testers ( parents, kids living with diffability, self-advocates, therapists, educators, physicians, and freedom fighters) Hang on, fasten your seat belts, it might be a little bumpy along the way, but it will be worth it, we promise.
