Interesting article. I've known of other work regarding using games 
alongside physio. Namco built a controller to encourage a disabled man to 
develop his upper body strength to play games (pictured below). Reminds me 
also of talks at a conference I attended called "Enter 2000" years ago, 
covering assistive technology and Virtual Reality with some really good 
work.

good read too for people interested in adapted controllers, which details 
difficulties with interesting physios etc. in rehab + games.

Article talks about a quadriplegic gamer that thinks the Nintendo
Revolution controller will be great for him.
