MONTGOMERY, ALA. – Beasley Allen law firm and dozens of other attorneys from across the country are banding together to help people with disabilities, as well as those recovering from injuries including strokes, broken bones, surgery and even combat injuries. By working together and donating dozens of Nintendo Wiis to local rehabilitation centers, hospitals, nursing homes and similar facilities, we hope to help thousands of people. The Wii is becoming popular as a therapeutic tool. The game console’s unique, motion-sensitive controller requires body movements similar to traditional therapy exercises, but engages the user in such a way that they actually enjoy the experience and can work longer.

Beasley Allen presented a Wii gaming system and Wii Fit game to Camp ASCCA therapeutic recreation facility in Jacksons Gap, Ala., on Wednesday, Aug. 19. A second Wii will go to Children’s Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Beasley Allen utilized its presence on the popular social networking site, Facebook, to gather suggestions from Beasley Allen “friends” and “fans” about who should benefit from Project Wii-hab in our area. Camp ASCCA will use its Wii as a centerpiece of its workout room, as a key to its planned renovation in the coming weeks. Wii gaming activities will be added to the campers’ rotation of activities, which include swimming, boating, a splash pad, putt-putt golf, and a zip line and ropes course. Campers from the Alabama Head Injury Foundation were at Camp ASCCA on Tuesday, and were the first to enjoy the new Wii system.

More than just a gaming system, the Wii has been changing perceptions about what exercise is all about, and making it accessible to people with limited physical abilities. The Wii offers a variety of virtual sports, including bowling, golf and tennis, using a handheld wireless controller.

Project Wii-Hab was coordinated by the Injury Board Foundation, the non-profit arm of InjuryBoard.com, an online community of personal injury law firms, attorneys, safety industry experts and consumer advocates.
