This study will take place at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children in Vancouver. Study participants will come to Holland Bloorview once a week for five weeks to take part in an afternoon program where they will get to play the Liberi exergames together. Each session is two-hours long and involves one hour of exergame play, followed by one hour of socializing. Participants will answer 2 questions after each round played which will take about 1 minute. At the last session, there is another questionnaire that will take about 10-15 minutes that will ask about your mood, enjoyment, sense of control, and sense of belonging during the gaming sessions. Six participants will be involved at each hospital. There will also be one “cross-country day” where all 12 participants will play together via the internet.
Participants will receive Holland Bloorview parking passes and/or TTC tokens, for each of the five sessions. Participants will also receive a small token of appreciation, a $20 gift card at the end of the study, to thank them for being a participant. We can also provide volunteer hours to participants if they are interested.
