Active Gaming is healthy a recent study shows:
Active Gaming is usually given a kicking by health experts, but one recent study has actually deemed that “active gaming” could form part of “recommended physical activity”. Coming after the industry got in a huff over a government campaign that linked gaming to an early death, the Nottingham Trent University study indicated that active gaming could provide a safe and private environment in which to exercise, particularly for children and the obese with. Fifteen children were monitored while playing “traditional” games (deemed as “those requiring no real physical movement”), and with “interactive multimedia videogames” like Wii Sports or titles that use Sony’s motion-sensing EyeToy camera.
The resulting data highlighted that, during active game play, energy expenditure can be increased by approximately 42% above the levels measured during the more traditional game play sessions. Conclusions based on these studies suggested that if children engaged in active play for 60 minutes every day over a year, they would burn approximately 7.5lbs of body fat,” according to the report.
