Exergaming Australia at Games for Health Forum

Exergaming Australia (EGA) is attending the inaugural Games for Health Forum as part of the Game Developers’ Association of Australia (GDAA) sponsored Games Connect Asia Pacific Conference in Melbourne, Australia. The G4H Forum is on Sunday the 6th at the Crown Promenade Hotel.

The Forum has a wide range of panels and workshops arranged from utilizing virtual 3D environments in Secondlife to Accessibility (Dr. Belinda Lange), Video games for fall risk reduction in Seniors (Dr. Stuart Smith who is also the Chair of the Forum) and of course implementations of the Wii for neurological and stroke patients rehabilitation – http://www.gameconnectap.com and http://www.gameconnectap.com/pdf/GCAP_2009_Games4Health.pdf for a look at the G4H program.

As the Exergaming advocates at the Forum, we will be following closely how Australia is interpreting and innovating implementations of games/exergaming/virtual technologies in the Health-Rehab field.

Above all, it is truly exciting to see G4H represented in Australia and certainly wish all the speakers, the organisers, attendees and Dr. Stuart Smith all the best for this forum and future Forums/Conferences in Australia.
