|Virtual Hip Replacement Game Information|
Recommended Grade Levels: 7-12 (ages 13-15)
Run Time: 30-40 minutes
Story Line: A patient has a lot of pain in their hip. So much that they can no longer sleep at night. Assist Dr. Fisher in replacing the hip, learning about measuring, prosthetics, anatomy and patient care along the way.
Technical: This is a Flash game, so you will need the Puffin Academy Browser if you are going to play this game on a mobile device. We also recommend having ear buds to play the activity in class or in public areas. Speakers are fine for home use.
