UAB and Children’s Hospital Named State Leaders for National Pediatric Brain Injury Network 6-2009
Rehab Medicine Receives Wii Gift
Beasley Allen law firm is joining trial attorneys across the country in an effort to help people rediscover healthy living by donating Nintendo Wii gaming systems to local rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, hospitals and similar facilities. The project is being coordinated by The InjuryBoard Foundation, Inc., the non-profit arm of InjuryBoard.com, an online community of personal injury law firms, attorneys, safety industry experts and consumer advocates.
Beasley Allen utilized its presence on the popular social networking site, Facebook, to gather suggestions from Beasley Allen "friends" and "fans" about who should benefit from Project Wii-hab in our area. Children's of Alabama was selected as the overwhelming favorite. The Wii will go to the UAB Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine at Children's of Alabama, which serves children with conditions affecting motor development, function, and independence.
More than just a game, the Wii has been changing perceptions about what exercise is all about, and making it accessible to people with limited physical abilities. The Wii offers a variety of virtual sports, including bowling, golf and tennis, using a handheld wireless controller.
