Infographic : Please Help! A Dear Family Member of Mine Just Had 2 Strokes in a Week. She Lives Across Country, I Want to Get Her A Nintendo Switch To Help Recovery, BUT Need Help Explaining To Fam. Why & How Video Games Help Stroke Victims Recover So They Can Encourage Her To Use It!! Any Great Infographics?
Hello Everyone, and Sending Best Wishes To All.
I’m reaching out to you guys for help on this one, I appreciate any advice you have. I’m looking for an infographic explaining the correlation between use of video games and recovery from stroke. Or maybe an easy to understand chart showing how much faster people who play video games get closer to a place of “normality”. If the data includes things about happiness factor (since she’s understandably depressed) that would be great.
I have read long, thick articles about why video games may help stroke victims recover. I’ve also heard anecdotal reports. Also, to me it’s a logical thing that video games would help stroke victims with boredom, depression, but also to regain some very precise and important dexterity.
This is actually the second personal loved one of mine this year that has had something like this happen. In January a friend of mine, 28 years old, started having blurry vision, and went to the doctor where they found she had a mass, and bleeding around the brainstem. She had emergency surgery, and I bought her Nintendo switch lite for company, to help battle depression, to give her something to help her with feelings accomplishment, and importantly, also to help her fine motor skills. She’s been recovering remarkably fast. Yet, she’s 29 and though she was never a gamer, she embraced the games quickly, loves animal crossing now, and she also understands it helps recovery which I think was more necessary at first.
The loved one who just had the stroke now is my 70 year old great aunt. My family where she lives ins’t very tech savvy, doesn’t really look into the cutting edge of things. They don’t even have wifi, and her computer might still run Windows XP – but she really loves Facebook so she’s not totally inept tech-wise. When I tried to explain to some of them why I wanted to get her a switch, they were like, “well she’s about to go into rehab, might have to do 6 months or longer, then maybe we can think about video games.” Tried to explain it differently, didn’t really get through to them.
I tried looking for any succinct, fact-full articles, infographics, anything to show the benefit of video games for stroke victims. Does anyone have any good resources? They aren’t big into reading, so graphics are definitely the best.
**TLDR**; Looking for a infographic to show family why videogames are helpful for stroke victims.
**THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!!!!**

Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.
