Exergaming

“Video game playing used to be a sedentary pastime, but now a variety of games are compelling us to get up and move. These games – called “exergames” involve the player in dance, aerobics, kick-boxing, sports moves, martial arts, or other forms of physical activity and exertion as the way to interact within the game”. http://www.comm.ucsb.edu/lieberman_flash.htm

NEED
  • Inactive lifestyles have impacted the amount that children exercise and their desire to exercisebut not all children are interested in organized sports. Schools are trying to make their P.E.classesmore inclusive to children of different sizes, abilities and interests.
slide5
NEED
  • Exergaming is especially important for at-risk populations, specifically children who carry excess body weight and it appears to be a potentially innovative strategy that can be used to reduce down time, increase loyalty to exercise programs, and promote enjoyment of physical activity.
  • Exergaming provides a new and exciting way to draw students into a healthy lifestyle by letting them experience the fun and confidence associated with being physically fit.
research
RESEARCH
  • Exergaming is popular in the US and research is finding that it can improve players’ stress levels, weight management, fitness, and health.
  • Documented research indicates that physical activity through exergaming benefit cardio-vascular health, reduction of anxiety, improved sensory-motor learning, and improved cognitive alertness and performance (Shasek, 2005).
development
DEVELOPMENT
  • The first true attempt at what would later be called Exertainment was the Atari Puffer project (1982). This was an exercise bike that would hook up to an Atari 400/800 or 5200 system
  • The first exergaming system released to the market was the 1986 Computrainer and designed as a training aid and motivational tool

EXERGAMING- Atari’s Puffer project in 1982 was the first known attempt at producing an exergaming activity. By the late 1980s, Nintendo tried again with the Powerpad, but to no avail, it faded from the market. During the 1990s, the fitness business encountered positive feedback from customers when they included traditional exercise with technology. Finally, in 1998, exergaming started to become the new exercise craze and it continues to grow today.

  • Scientific research was done in 2011 comparing energy cost of 6 forms of exergaming
  • Results claimed that the Xertrainer showed higher results in exercise, enjoyment and social development.
development1
DEVELOPMENT

The original goal behind the creation of Sportwall was to create fun short, fast moving, full-body games that engaged the full intensity and focus of the athlete, with results measured via electronically generated scores. Today, this approach has proven successful and continues to incentivize repeated play until mastery takes place.
