Guitar Hero 3 For Rehabilitation Purposes

I just read a story about using Guitar Hero 3 for rehabilitation purposes. "Wii-habilitation" they call it. Health care workers believe that modifying the Wii may help some patients through the recovery process.

They have even taken the therapy as far as allowing amputees to rock out and get valuable training with prosthetic prototypes at the same time.

The nerves are used that once controlled the muscle. The electrodes that are placed against the skin can detect these nerve signals and control the prosthetic limb.
