Abstract

Virtual-reality (VR) has great potential for use in rehabilitation and exercise contexts. Older people who exercise are generally healthier, more independent and enjoy a better quality of life compared to their sedentary peers. Given the previous evidence of advantages from VR supported physical activity programmes in different groups, the question if older people accept exercising in a virtual environment is of particular relevance. Degree of acceptance may have important implications for future use and concordance to VR-enhanced exercise programmes. Therefore, this study investigates how older people perceive and experience virtual-reality enhanced exercise.
