Can you injure yourself on WiiFit?

My granddad is 70 and is using WiiFit for the first time. He complained that his legs were hurting during the "virtual" bike ride and I'm a little worried. Is it possible for him to hurt himself?

Absolutely you can get hurt

Absolutely you can get hurt on a Wii Fit. You can overdo it doing any kind of physical activity even playing a video game. Watch out for your furniture too! My sister in-law nearly broke her ankle running into the furniture when playing a game.

It would be much better for

It would be much better for him to start out doing something gentler on him than a bike ride even though it is a "virtual" one. Water aerobics are great for elderly and for people who cannot put much stress on joints or backs.

As Simon said, you can hurt

As Simon said, you can hurt yourself doing anything, even sitting. If he is still having pain, I would take him to the surgery to get everything OK'd. Make sure you talk to the doctor before he gets into any type of exercise he isn't used to.

With every kind of pyhsical

With every kind of pyhsical activity, it is possible to get hurt or injured. Be sure that your grandfather is in good physical condition (which might require a physician's opinion)before attempting any kind of exercise.
