dc.description.abstractTo determine if the Wii Active exergame can improve older adults functional fitness (FF) and balance, compared to a Wii Fit exergame program, traditional exercise program (TRAD), and control group (CON). Interventions were 8 weeks. Wii groups trained using their corresponding exergame, TRAD in traditional classes, and CON did not alter daily activities. No differences were noted in pre measurements of FF and balance. Results were evaluated using qualitative comparisons. With respect to FF, TRAD exhibited the largest change, followed by Wii Active and little change by Wii Fit. With respect to balance, both Wii groups exhibited similar large changes. Wii Active appears to be as effective as TRAD for balance and more effective than Wii Fit for FF.en_US
