The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA's) Wii Fit™ pilot research study at the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System in Little Rock is looking for ways in which veterans can increase their balance and physical activity. The study involved a randomly assigned group of 30 participants. Researchers used the Wii ™ program, comparing results with a control group that completed computer-based mental exercises. The results showed 12 times greater improvement in balance among the older Veterans using the Wii Fit™ program compared to the control group.
