VR Immersive Fitness Gym: 6 New VR Exercises You Never Experienced.
Bored with exercise? Virtual reality, immersive fitness might help you.
We all want to keep fit, while the government also says in new exercise guidelines telling us to 'Move more, sit less'. However, only 21 percent of adults are getting the minimum amount of exercise a week needed to get protective health benefits, said Aaron Stanton, Director of the Health Institute at San Francisco State.
"We are not a fit nation. " he said. Exercising for the sake of exercise is not really a great motivator. The more fun moving is， the more likely we'll get ourselves fit. "Virtually reality exercise is a really, really good at being able to distract you from the fact that you were exercising and letting you just enjoy the game," said Dr Stanton.
VR Gym 1) VR Snake Football Battle （head and neck exercise）, Moving your head to play a football match. Eliminate Pains in Your Neck
Tired of reaching for a bottle of pills to quell your chronic pain?
You can exercise your cervical spine/head/neck while playing a football game, controlling a snake football match by moving your neck and head following doctors' guides. Real scenes:
Acute and chronic neck pain are common medical conditions, and the treatment typically includes physical therapy involving daily exercises. Insufficient motivation of people afflicted with neck pain to adhere to the prescribed exercise regimen may delay their recovery. Accordingly, in this VR Snake, we propose a system that motivates the users to perform neck exercises by engaging them in a popular Snake Game within virtual reality (VR) environment. The system measures the users’ neck movements via a few static and dynamic kinematic tests and a novel VR Snake battle, tailored to the neck range of motion of each individual user.
The game is designed to make the users perform rehabilitative neck movements according to the prescribed exercise regimen while playing.
