Cycling through the Italian hills thanks to exergaming

The magazine Denkbeeld recently published our article about the experiences with exergaming of people with dementia, family caregivers and day care centre staff. Exergaming consisted in our project of interactive cycling on an exercise bike placed in front of a screen showing a route. The faster one cycles, the faster the landscape passes by. The article discusses a number of positive aspects (improvements in cognition, social behaviour and in the case of informal carers, among other things, less stress). Almost everyone was satisfied with this activity. Recommendations are also given for successfully offering exergaming in day care centres. Read here the article
