My rationalization for buying a Wii Balance Board

This week’s ITConversations show features a cameo appearance by my wife Luann, who came home a couple of weeks ago raving about the Wii Balance Board that she’d been using in physical therapy. I talked with Luann about how her therapists, Anna Domyancic and Darren Gerber, are using the Balance Board — and the Wii Fit software — to help retrain her proprioceptors. Then I visited Keene Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine where Anna gave me a demo of their Wii setup and talked about how and why physical therapists are adopting the technology.

I still haven’t bought one, but there are 6 shopping days until Christmas so there’s plenty of time.

  1. Good luck finding one. Amazon Marketplace shows them starting at $147 ($90 retail, when available).

  2. Thanks Jon. It would be good to hear more episodes like this where you go out into the community and report on what real people are doing with technology.

  3. I have a 750 sq foot garage that doubles as my car shop & hobbies area and just needing a heater to heat the garage for when the winter comes again this year. Last year my old space heaters quit working at the end of the year so I need to get them replaced. Any suggestions?

  4. I’ve been tired of MW2.. I can’t wait for Black Ops! I just registered to get my copy of Call of Duty Black Ops before release… yeaaa!!

    The single player FFA modes are gonna be sooo sick!
