Abstract

The purpose of this study was to understand the outcomes of using somatosensory video games (SVG) on institutionalized older adults with mild-cognitive impairment. Complete twenty minute SVG twice a week for eight weeks. Ruler Drop Reaction Time Test (RDRTT) was to measure simple reaction on older adults with mild-cognitive impairment. Results showed that the participants significantly improved their simple reactions after the 8-week SVG intervention. The study concluded that using SVG is a potential tool to enhance the reaction ability on institutionalized older adults with mild-cognitive impairments.
