Wii helps fighting obesity

Posted on Wednesday, February 21 2007 @ 00:26:27 CET by

A British research found that game consoles like the Nintendo Wii, which require players to use body movements to control the action, can help people burn up a significant amount of calories.
A study by Liverpool John Moores University found regular use could help shift 27lb (12.25kg) a year.

The study was carried out to establish whether computer games can contribute to the daily activity recommendations for children.

Parents should encourage other physical activities and outdoor pursuits in order for their children to lead well-balanced live

The researchers compared activity levels during gaming using the Wii with those achieved using traditional seated joypad-controlled consoles.

They found more active forms of gaming increased energy expenditure to a level which could help lose weight.
