Wii and Head Control

Here is an interesting but very small study on using the Wii controller to assist with head control. Two subjects with multiple disabilities used the Wii remote controller to control their favorite stimulation by actively keeping their head in an upright position. The results showed that both participants significantly increased their time maintaining the head in an upright position.
