Exergaming - playfully fit and healthy! powered by DIFG & Sphery (in German)
The human being carries a natural play instinct within him. Playing brings people together and makes an important contribution to personal development. This is why playing is so important for bio-psycho-social health.
Even though the gaming market is booming and there are around 2.6 billion gamers worldwide, the integration of games is still hardly part of fitness offers. Exergames - movement-based games - combine gaming fun with a workout. Whether playing alone or in multiplayer mode, depending on the design, exergames can be used to train a wide variety of physical (e.g. balance, speed, strength, endurance), cognitive (e.g. attention, memory, executive functions) and mental functions (e.g. relaxation) and thus demonstrably achieve individual training goals. Exergaming offers the fitness industry the opportunity to profit from a strong trend and to develop new target groups as an innovative health provider.
