When Trauma Center: New Blood was released with the Nintendo Wii, gamers who were lucky enough to find the console were able to pretend to take part in complex "medical" procedures requiring fine motor control and a steady hand. While the missions in the game had only a passing resemblance to anything a real doctor would perform, many gamers wondered how they would fare in the real world. It turns out that, with a bit of additional training, they might do pretty well. At least one hospital is now using the Nintendo Wii to improve the hand-eye coordination of their surgeons and finding that the improvements seen in game-trained doctors are striking.
