PhD Title: Microsoft AGE: Adapted Games for Elderly
Summary of Project: My Project aims to develop adapted interactive games for older adults that encourage them to move and perform exercises. I focus my research on how natural user interfaces devices such as Microsoft Kinect Sensor can be used in a rehabilitation environment. How can digital games be able to adapt to each player's specific physical abilities? And how to design digital games that require from player to perform specific movements and at same time they are fun.
