In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, virtual reality and interactive gaming technology for obese and diabetic children was further investigated.
The Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center has pursued a number of technologies that may have application to the problems of obesity and diabetes management, noted the study.
It continued: “Technology in virtual reality (VR), interactive gaming, exergaming, and mobile tools has advanced very rapidly.
“The medical community is due for a reassessment of these technologies as they relate to obesity and diabetes.
“Exploring creative ways to employ and interconnect existing technology for obesity and diabetes management is a relatively simple and achievable goal.
“The key is in the creativity applied to the task with virtual reality exergaming potentially being the answer to this.”
