GenreShort Story

My piece relates to the intern's research because the character in my story uses video game therapy to recover from a stroke. I was personally influenced by this research because I recently dislocated my knee and had to go through a long process of physical therapy in order to rebuild my strength, and it seems to me that the medical field is rapidly advancing due to today's technology, using everyday video games as a method for rehabilitation.
