Patients are playing mahjong at Dongguan Rehabilitation Hospital, which is believed to be of great help to their rehabilitation. 

Playing mahjong can also benefit health? Recently, the Dongguan Rehabilitation Hospital introduced an automatic mahjong machine to promote patients' rehabilitation, which sparked heated discussions among Chinese netizens.

According to DGRTV's report, the hospital considers the automatic mahjong machine a new "weapon" for rehabilitation training. It believes that playing mahjong can bring great help to the rehabilitation of cerebral stroke patients. "While playing mahjong, you need to use the hands to take the tiles, which can exercise your upper limbs. You need to use your brain, which may exercise memory and cognitive abilities. And you will also talk, which may exercise your speech skills. Another point is that it is fun and not boring to play mahjong, so it can also soothe emotions," a medical staff of the hospital's neuro-rehabilitation department introduced.

Currently, more than 20 among the over 50 patients in the inpatient department have signed up to play mahjong. Every night, the medical staff will arrange for several patients to take turns playing mahjong for a while, which will take less than 30 minutes.

In addition to mahjong machines, the hospital has introduced various rehabilitation treatment measures, including karaoke, table tennis and square dancing, which the patients received well.
