Medicine via Nintendo Wii

Nintendo Wii is a special video game console. I said special because the controller can be held with just one hand and uses technology that senses the player’s movements. There is an interesting Nintendo Wii video game called Trauma Center: Second Opinion that I would like to present you now.

You know well that one of my aims is to close the gap between medicine and laypeople. How can we reach it easier? We just make it possible for anyone to play a surgeon. It’s the same as in the case of Second Life. We just let people experience how it is like to be scanned by a CT scan, for example.

So now, in Trauma Center:

You play the surgeon in this exciting Medical Drama simulation. You’ll need to cure patients of everything from routine medical maladies to life-threatening designer viruses. And, of course, there’s all that drama waiting just outside of the operating room.

Your medical toolkit includes scalpels, forceps, defibrillator paddles, syringes and more–all designed for use with the Wii Remote!
