Improving Co-ordination using the Nintendo Wii

Using the visual prompting on screen a great deal of co-ordination is required to process the information and react to it physically through the lower limbs in order to create the desired movement and maintain balance.

Games that offer an opportunity to at working on basic and controlled co-ordination would be We Ski, Wii Fit Ski Slalom, Football heading, Tilt table and Bubble river. Higher levels of co-ordination can be worked on through games such as Wii Fit yoga, muscle strength and We Ski & Snowboard – using the snowboard version.
