video game machine Video game mojo touted to promote exercise
Stewart Smith thinks video games have black magic.Associate professors at the University of tazhou want to take advantage of this advantage, which seems to be an impossible task.As director of the utashealth Research Center, DrSmith focuses on how to use technology to prevent obesity and chronic diseases.
The appeal, appeal and addiction of video games can be used to promote regular exercise, Dr. Smith said."Because of the aging population, society is facing an increasing burden..."Chronic diseases will also increase because people are not engaged in a healthy lifestyle," Dr.
Smith said .
".
"We need to explore how to engage people in sustainable sports and how some people adopt a healthy lifestyle and a better way of eating.But Dr Smith said it would be a challenge to get people interested in games that target health and health, and to get older people interested in video games."It's a bit of an intellectual challenge and a logistical challenge to accept the technology that these young people are very familiar with and make it suitable for the elderly," he said .
".
"How do we make people too short --Engage regularly, maybe in a few weeks or a month, they may change their behavior, but not in a lifetime?"People are happy to spend money on downloading mobile apps or buying cd or TV content, so we need to dig into something in the consumer mindset.Dr. Smith said he is developing a Microsoft Kinect for windows gaming device to help recover stroke patients and injured people and reduce the risk of falls in older people.Most rehabilitation work is boring."If you want people to finish the exercises over and over again and they don't get any feedback from the task, it's not an incentive, people just don't do it," Dr.
Smith said .
".
"By using video games, we can get information about a person's health to give them feedback on how they can do it again, and we can also connect it to a remote clinician."This is important because in a state with a relatively large population like tazhou, there may be people living in communities where there are no physical therapists, occupational therapists, neurologists.\ "Jstephens @ fairfaxmedia.com
