AGETECH STARTS “SENIOR EXERGAMES” INITIATIVE

Thanks to a donation from the Microsoft Corporation, AgeTech West gave away seven Xbox One Kinect Bundles and “Kinect Sports Rivals” games in a drawing at its recent annual conference in Seattle, WA. The goal is to launch a coordinated “Senior Exergames” mini-movement for wellness and socialization in senior living communities. The random winners each certified that they had sufficient equipment, space and activity staff to fully utilize the Xbox for exergaming. They also committed to participate in cross-site Kinect Bowling competitions using the integrated Skype video conferencing, and coordinate competitions, post scores, etc. on a Senior Exergames Facebook Group Page. Watch for updates about their experiences and competitions!
