A popular video game may help improve balance and movement in patients with multiple sclerosis.

The Nintendo Wii’s balance board allows users to shift their weight as they simulate actions like skiing, soccer or hula hoop.

Researchers used MRI scans to track brain activity in MS patients who used the balance board for a 12-week period.

They noticed the significant changes in nerve tracts linked to balance and movement led to physical improvements in these areas.
