- Brief summaryIn this project, the (cost-)effectiveness of an innovative way of exercising for people with dementia will be studied: exergaming. Exergaming technology focuses on gaming exercises that are controlled by physical movements of the player. The aim of this intervention is to stimulate persons with dementia to exercise indoors in an enjoyable, safe way, thereby promoting physical, cognitive, emotional and social functioning. A randomized controlled trial will be conducted among participants with dementia who attend day care with or without exergaming activities. The effectiveness of exergaming will be compared to regular activities in day centres on performance of physical activities (primary outcome) and on physical, cognitive and social functioning, on behaviour and mood problems and quality of life of people with dementia; and on burden of informal caregivers (secondary outcomes). Furthermore, the cost-effectiveness will be studied as well as the satisfaction with exergaming and factors to improve implementation of exergaming in dementia care.
Partipants will be recruited from the Netherlands.
