GEMs – Games for Enhancing Movement

Stand number: 7


Age-related declines in movement performance can often prevent participation in sport and physical activity. GEMs are games that harness the power of patterns of visual and auditory information so they act as catalysts for improving movement performance. At our stand visitors can try our Wii GEMs: bespoke balance based games specially designed to improve both balance control and confidence in older adults. Those interested in golf can try our Golf GEM: an audio-visual golfing device aimed at improving the consistency and timing of a golf stroke. Results from studies will also be presented.
