Abstract/Summary

Sedentary lifestyle is a serious problem which affects health. Sufficient physical activities help to maintain ability to manage daily lives. This can be a challenge. Exergames has become a possible stimulator to encourage especially seniors away from sedentary lifestyle. This paper, from a graphic interface point of view, investigates the impact of Microsoft Kinect-based exergames on seniors’ motivation to exercise. The exergames include three different graphics user interfaces. Information from NHS recommended motions for seniors was adopted in the development of the games. These games induced a conduction of experiment and interviews with participants from Southampton Age UK. The experiment results showed that different graphics interfaces do have an impact on seniors’ motivation to exercise.
