A new report says that playing simple card games can help stroke patients their recovery just as much as virtual reality gaming. Canadian researchers conducted a test 141 patients to determine whether gaming or more traditional games was better treating stroke sufferers. They found that playing cards, games like dominoes, and even throwing a paper ball a basket improved patients' motor skills. They said playing bingo or using a Wii games console also aided recovery a stroke. The researchers reported that if the type task used the rehabilitation motor skills is intensive, repetitive and gets the hands and arms moving, it will help those recovering a stroke.

A stroke happens when the blood supply to part the brain is cut . It can lead to death if not treated quickly. Following a stroke, sufferers can experience a number physical changes such as drooping face muscles, slurred speech and a loss of strength the arms and legs. The researchers said it wasn't clear whether virtual reality gaming or traditional games helped sufferers more. Researcher Dr Gustavo Saposnik said: "We all like technology and have the tendency to think that new technology is better than old-fashioned strategies, but sometimes that's not the case. this study, we found that simple recreational activities that can be implemented anywhere may be as effective as technology."
