Samenvatting

Exergames, as one might infer from the name, are a combination of exercise and games. As such, they stimulate players to perform certain behaviours by providing them with engaging game mechanics (Whitehead, Johnston, Nixon, & Welch, 2010). While they can be used during physiotherapeutic rehabilitation sessions, they are particularly useful to increase therapy adherence at home (Song, Peng, & Lee, 2011). In this extended abstract, we explore an approach that addresses the first problem: how can we design a game that can be mapped on a wide range of therapeutic exercises?
