Abstract [en]

Active living in older adults reduces disabilities and increases quality of life. Adherence to physical activity is low in older adults, therefore new possibilities to motivate to exercise must be explored. One of this new possibilities is to use exergaming. In this paper, we present an assistive tool for monitoring daily, physical activities in older adults with access to exergaming in their home environments. The proposed system employs the Kinect device and allows one to analyse the body movements. From a pilot study, we proved that the system can detect movements through exergaming. In the future we plan to implement the developed monitoring tool as well as exergaming in nursing homes.
