Children with motor coordination problems exhibit impairments in gross-motor eye-body coordination. Exergames are good in supporting motor therapeutic interventions. However, available exergames are not designed to support the needs of these children, presenting excessive cognitive load and suggesting practice of inappropriate body interactions. In this work, we investigate the design ...

Leisure physical activities help older adults remain physically active. Playing exergames can help promote active aging. However, the movements and exercise supported in these games must be adapted to the particular physical conditions of each older adult to facilitate adoption and adherence. This paper presents a study following the Action ...

This paper envisions a futuristic scenario for supporting gross and fine motor skills of children with developmental disorders in an integrated environment using virtual reality, exergames, tracking sensors (e.g., Kinect, Leap motion) and artificial intelligence. First, we show the importance of supporting gross and fine motor coordination skills of children ...

As the number of older adults increases, and with it the demand for dedicated care, geriatric residences face a shortage of caregivers, who themselves experience work overload, stress, and burden. We conducted a long-term field study in three geriatric residences to understand the work conditions of caregivers with the aim ...

Motor coordination problems are common in different developmental disorders including autism and dyspraxia. Gross and fine motor coordination skills are critical to the appropriate motor coordination development that is relevant to support individuals' independence. Exergames are a good tool to help children practice motor skills as they find them engaging. ...

Exergames on interactive floors are appropriate to promote exercise and socialization in ludic environments. However, they lack of mechanisms to help children of early age to develop age-appropriate motor skills. In this paper, we present the design and development of an exergame to promote the collaborative exercising in young children ...

This paper presents a framework which can be used to analyze information systems as knowledge flow facilitators in organizational processes. This framework may be useful, particularly to small organizations, for two main reasons: it can help them to start seeing the implications of KM in their current technical infrastructure, and ...

Hospitals are convenient settings for the deployment of context-aware applications. The information needs of hospital workers are highly dependent on contextual variables, such as location, role and activity. While some of these parameters can be easily determined, others, such as activity are much more complex to estimate. This paper describes ...

Information management in a hospital setting requires significant collaboration, mobility, and data integration. Patient care, a task often complicated by time-critical urgency, can involve many devices and a variety of staff. So far, no system has addressed these unique requirements.The authors designed a context-aware mobile system that empowers mobile devices ...
