Abstract
This paper explores current trends and available solutions in the field of games for health focus on Parkinson?s disease (PD). According to the Parkinson?s Disease Foundation it is estimated that seven to ten million people worldwide are living with PD. Besides this statistics tend to get worse as the population gets older and older. In the last decades the active ageing term has gained extreme importance. As the ageing of the population growths the healthcare policies and strategies need to adapt to this new situation. In that sense, active ageing aims to extend healthy life expectancy and quality of life for all people as they age. Games for health have been proved to be an excellent approach to maintain autonomy and independence for the older people. ;DOI 10.1007/978-3-319-03005-0 Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014
