GAmification for a Better LifE

GABLE aims to create the first online video games service for youths with Cerebral Palsy, which will be the hosting platform of games (exergames and non-exergames) focused on improving motor skills and visual-motor coordination for youths with Cerebral Palsy. These games will leverage the latest advances in Computer Vision and image processing techniques, in order to improve accessibility. The platform will be constructed with social networking in mind, which will allow parents, care givers and patients to socialize in a common environment, to share experiences and advice, in an effort to provide the best care for Cerebral Palsy patients. Caregivers would also be able to share best practices and lessons learned among themselves, which will help them provide a better service across Europe and beyond.

Play is probably the main activity for any child. Through play, children start exploring their world, and put the basis of their own system of values, which will be the cornerstone of their adult life. Play in children with CP becomes difficult due to the disability, and this in turn can affect child’s self-esteem. In addition, the sensory and motor problems experienced by children with CP affect how they interact with their surroundings, including the environment and other people.

In this context, video games, and in particular exergames, represent a very promising way to enable youths with CP to perform the exercise they need to break the cycle of deconditioning, while allowing them to socialize with others in fun ways from the comfort of their homes. Exergames are a combination of exercise (or exertion) and video games. Reviews of exergames indicate that they have positive effects both on motivation for active participation in rehabilitation and on impaired functions.
