Artificial heart gets field-tested with DDR
If I was outfitted with an artificial heart, I’d want to test it out with some arrow-stomping cardio. That’s what a young woman did, according to this press release from MarketWatch.
After receiving the high-tech heart, and during the months of waiting for a donor heart, the 21-year-old spent an hour a day playing DDR in the hospital. (Just what every hospital needs, a DDR machine!) She is now transplanted with the real thing, and credits the artificial heart for keeping her healthy in the meantime. I think a certain video game deserves some props, too.
