10 people a week hospitalized in Britain from Wii use?

“There has been a 100 per cent increase in patients complaining of Wii-itis. I’ve seen many patients aged between eight and 13 — and I’ve seen adults. It’s possible that Wii-itus may lead to rheumatism and arthritis in later life. Patients often have inflammation of the shoulder or wrist. People who are double-jointed are most likely to suffer from Wii-knee — and in extreme cases the knee cap can be dislocated or can even pop out.” – Dr Dev Mukerjee, of Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Essex

Wow…I don’t know if this is really true or not, but somehow I really have a difficult time believing this! We’ve all heard of Wiiitis before, but have things really the situation really deteriorated to this extent? Or do people not know when they should stop playing Wii Sports/Wii Fit?
