Abstract:Digital Games which incorporate movements of the player`s body in their gameplay are becoming more and more popular. An increasing number of doctors and physical therapists use such games for training exercises, although these games are not designed to achieve predefined training goals. Various studies show that the training effects of these games are small in comparison with classic exercises. Therapists request more accessible and more flexible games. In this paper we present an adaptive game for fall prevention based on the adaptation and exergame analysis framework StoryTecRT which allows the adaptation of parameters which impact accessibility, acceptance and training load of a game. This paper includes an insight into the framework and the implementation as well as first evaluation results.
