Research Title: How effective are 'exergames' in providing physical activity for adults?

This thesis is an evaluation of 'exergames' (exercise based computer simulation) as a physical activity modality to achieve the recommended levels of physical activity in a healthy adult population up to 45 years of age. It will also examine psychosocial factors associated with the use of exergames in this population since these factors are likely to affect medium and long term adherence rates.
