Nintendo Wii related injuries!!??

My housemate’s brother bought a Nintendo Wii lately and sometimes would bring it over to play. As they were tennis fans, she and her husband would usually spend their time playing Tennis on WiiSports.

Now, it seems that even in simulcara, real life injuries do pop up too. Excerpt from a report from CNN,

BOSTON, Massachusetts (Reuters) — When Dr. Julio Bonis awoke one Sunday morning with a sore shoulder, he could not figure out what he had done. It felt like a sports injury, but he had been a bit of a couch potato lately.Then he remembered his new Wii.


Bonis, 29, had spent hours playing Nintendo Co.’s new video game in which players simulate real movements. Bonis had been playing simulated tennis.


It was not quite tennis elbow, he decided.

Actually, it just had to happen.
