We have all heard of the revolution that Wii Fit has had on the retirement community. The problem is, it really isn’t that impressive. It seems that most older adults are using it for bowling, if that. One of the places where I work has 2 games and all these remotes, and it has NEVER been opened.
One of the things of the Wii balance board is the aerobic dance. I found it challenging and fun to play along on my board. However, I worried about the potential for falling or incorrect footwork with the older population. Today I stumbled on a game which is friendly to the older adults and which encourages active participation.
Here is a link to the slideshow presentation. Maybe this would be an idea for the egame.
