Wii elbow
 n.— «As players spend more time with the Wii, some are noticing that hours waving the game’s controller around can add up to fairly intense exertion—resulting in aches and pains common in more familiar forms of exercise. They’re reporting aching backs, sore shoulders—even something some have dubbed “Wii elbow.”» —“A Wii Workout: When Videogames Hurt” by Jamin Warren Wall Street Journal Nov. 25, 2006.
