Thanks to a donation from the “Get Well Gamers Foundation,” AgeTech is distributing a couple dozen games to nonprofit West Coast LeadingAge members for use in older adult “exergaming” wellness programs. Nintendo Wii Games include the “Golds Gym Cardio Workout,” “Wii Fit,” “My Fitness Coach,” and “Yoga & Pilates Workouts,” and a few Microsoft Xbox 360 games include “Kinect Adventures,” Your Shape Fitness Evolved,” and “Dance Central.” More Wii and Xbox games are available depending on demand.
AgeTech has also submitted a grant proposal to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Foundation to create a “SeniorExergames.com” movement among the West Coast LeadingAge membership, in which it would distribute 50 Xbox One game consoles and games to participating providers and build a website to promote competitions among sites among other elements. Microsoft Corporation has donated $5,000 toward the purchase of Xbox game consoles.
Contact Scott Peifer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in one of the games listed above for your community. Please include “Exergames” in the subject line.
