What do virtual reality and gaming have to do with Parkinson’s disease? In this show, Dr. Nathan B. Herz, a professor of occupational therapy at Georgia Health Sciences University, discusses gaming technologies that potentially can slow the progression of symptoms and increase function in individuals with Parkinson’s disease. For nearly a decade, Dr. Herz has conducted research using the Wii Gaming System with clients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the GHSU Movement Disorders Program, a National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence.
