Researchers at the Sister Kenny Institute at Northwest Abbot Hospital in Minnesota have reported encouraging result is using computer games to speed patient rehabilitation. The system uses a bio-feedback device to allow patients to play games by controlling a computer cursor with small muscle contractions.
