UToronto Student Develops Therapeutic Video Game

January 12, 2007

William Li, a fourth-year UToronto engineering student, has developed a video game that aims to help children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy develop motor skills, particularly in their weaker side. Li's game is a fun, safe, in-home method that gets children to use their weak side to throw fruit into a bowl, grab items and grate animated cheese. The neurodevelopment program at Bloorview credits students for many of their best ideas. UofT media release
