Effects of exergames for people with dementia

The VU University Medical Center Amsterdam will start a study to the effects of exergames for people living with dementia in day care centers. The effects of the SilverFit Mile will be analysed among others. Franka Meiland, a senior researcher at the VUmc, investigates together with colleagues if "exergaming (exercising in a virtual environment) will result in more physical activities and will have a positive effect on the  physical, cognitive, emotional and social functioning of people living with dementia and at the perceived burden of informal care providers". 

Franka will tell us more about this study at our next user meeting.
