Promoting An Active Lifestyle In The Third Age
Tell Me More


This project is an initial step towards building the next generation of games that aim to promote physical activity in the senior community.

Traditionally, players have to perform some form of exercise in order to play and win the game, which has surprisingly been reported as monotonous and even boring.

This project explores a new concept where physical exercise and gameplay don’t have to happen at the same time.

Instead, seniors can workout at their own pace in their own time, and we automatically link this activity into the game.

This can make a significant difference in increasing the motivation towards a more active lifestyle in the third age.
