Abstract

Numerous parties have used traditional exercises as interventions to improve individuals' physical activity levels. These were found to be effective in reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as hypertension, heart diseases, and diabetes. Recent studies have shown that exergames are alternative approaches of physical activity intervention. This paper presents the preliminary design of an exergaming system with force haptic feedback. The system will be used to investigate the relationship between body movements, energy expenditure, and muscle activities during upper-extremity-focused and lower-extremity-focused exergames. The results generated from experiments performed with the system will serve as useful references for developing standards and guidelines for selecting the appropriate types of exergames for specific intended outcomes.
