Research Blog 2: Exergames and Rehabilitation

As I gather articles for my research paper, one that I have found pretty helpful and interesting is an article entitled Video Game-Based Exercises for Balance Rehabilitation: A Single-Subject Design, which looks at exergames and the rehabilitation.  Published by a group of PHD’s in 2006, this article aims to display the benefits and progress of patients (who suffered from cerebral injuries) during the rehabilitation process, that utilized exergames in place of traditional physical therapy.  For example, one game that is discussed in this article is an adaptation of Tic-Tac-Toe, where the player shifts their weight to select a square in order to form a line to beat the computer.  I believe that this is a highly relevant article for my research, and is one I will defiantly be referencing in my project.
