Osteoporosis is a major bone disease in the world, increasing the risk of fractures, and that can be slow down by an healthy lifestyle. Therefore, physical activity is very important, but engagement is a challenge. Eléa's research aims to design active games (exergames) to increase engagement while improving physical health, and fitting to a population at risk of fall and fracture.
This event will be held in HYBRID format. Please join us in-person at the Games Institute, EC1 at the University of Waterloo or virtually through Microsoft Teams.
