Christmas Present Warning: “Wii Puts 10 In Hospital a Week”

According to the article. there has been a 100 percent increase in injury reporting from Wii users… 100%!? So what are the symptoms:

… tendon stretching
… possible arthritis or rheumatism in later life
… “Wii-Knee” with the knee becoming dislocated or pooping out of joint

So is the cause the Wii and if you get rid of it you won’t get hurt? Nope just plain health issues. By the way I saw another news release where senior citizens use Wii to simulate bowling. So before you graduate to Wii start with Pong and then work your way through PacMan… Stretching and taken breaks in between games. Blame was arrived to quickly again.
