Stroke Patients will be benefited by National Broadband Network

According to the minister of communication and ministry of health, National Broadband Network will roll out a new plan for customers and stroke patients will also get benefited highly from this service. Digital economy senator Stephen Conroy said that, “The NBN will change the way people in Australia live and work and today we are seeing how it will change the way health services are delivered. Neuroscience Research Australia will deliver rehabilitation therapy via a project using remote Wii. The project will use Nintendo Wii to deliver rehabilitation to 50 people with stroke-affected hands and arms living in the Kiama Downs and Minnamurra region.”

In Australia stroke is the second largest disability affecting innumerous people and families every year. Rehabilitation service is out of reach for most of the stroke victims as they live in rural and remote areas. Thanks to NBN it will change quality of life for most of the stroke patients; they can learn the rehabilitation techniques from being at home comfortably with a few clicks in computer.  Medical practitioners can also train them at ease from being at their residence or home.
