The New England Journal of Medicine, one of the best medical journals in the World, has just started an innovative new series on their website, Interactive Medical Cases. These interactive cases, so far just one, allow you to virtually manage an actual patient’s case, from presentation to outcome. The first case is just fantastic and I am really looking forward to new ones in the future. You absolutely have to try this unique combination of videos, animations, quizzes and other interactive content.

Kraftwerk is an electronic music band from Germany. They are definitely one of the most influential and revolutionary bands of all time and they inspired artists from nearly all genre of modern music. In the early to late 1970s and the early 1980s the were really hot with their sound that combines driving, repetitive electronically-generated rhythms with catchy synthesizer-generated melodies in a minimalistic arrangement.
Listen to them as they perform live their song Elektro Kardiogramm.
Interesting press release regarding use of Nintendo Wii Fit to benefit young patients undergoing physiotherapy.
Two Lancashire hospitals have taken the unusual step of introducing the Wii Fit computer console into their Physiotherapy Departments to aid the rehabilitation of young patients.
The idea was the brainchild of a 12-year old patient and staff at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which run Chorley and South Ribble Hospital and Royal Preston Hospital, have purchased two game consoles and fitness games to benefit youngsters undergoing treatment.
The Nintendo Wii Fit aims to promote health and fitness through active games.
Lesley Walters, Head of Physiotherapy, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We provide a paediatric and adolescent physiotherapy service. One of our patients suggested it would be a good idea and new and fun way to get youngsters to undertake physiotherapy.
“Physiotherapy sessions for children and young people often use play or diversion techniques to get them to overcome any discomfort or stiffness they may feel.
“Wii Fit is a great way of using computer games to stimulate interest while performing exercises which can be uncomfortable.
“We encourage people to have fun while undergoing physiotherapy and the use of a computer games console which encourages fitness is a fantastic innovation for physiotherapy.
“Two consoles have been purchased and we will be using them in our paediatric and adolescent physiotherapy services at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital and Royal Preston Hospital. It is being used in an increasing number of NHS Physiotherapy departments and I’m sure that it will prove very popular in Lancashire.”
