The benefits of exercise applications and whether they could be used to help people with type 2 diabetes will be explored as part of a new study. Known as exergames, they are a genre of games that have been developed for smartphones and tablets to attract people to move while playing. Body movements are tracked through technology so that users can see how they have benefited from participating. Being active and exercising is considered a vital way to control obesity and type 2 diabetes, so researchers in Switzerland, Australia, and Spain want to investigate how effective they are. The study will involve 42 people aged 45 to 70 who have type 2 diabetes and do not exercise. Everyone must have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 25 kg / m2 and be able to use a smartphone.
