Keep Your Eyes on the Road, Kid!

Motivating Children with DCD to Ride a Bike in VR

Samenvatting

Twinsense360 and Het Roessingh Research and Development have developed a project that aims to help children aged 6 - 12 with DCD (Developmental Coordination Disorder) learn how to perform an essential daily task, riding a bike from home to school. This will help them regain their confidence and independence. DCD is a chronic neurological disorder that impacts a child’s ability to perform simple and complex motor tasks, like tying their shoes, writing, and riding a bike. This project is about a serious VR game, where the child sits on a real bike while cycling through a VR world.
The problem regarding the product was that the children were not motivated to play the game. This study investigated how to motivate the children to play the game more than once, so that it can be efficiently used as physical therapy.
Based on a literature review of current knowledge, a prototype of a new game level has been created. By performing an expert review with 5 experts, the study shows that by making the serious game attentive to the specific needs of the children regarding their disorder, and by making the game fun and implementing motivational methods, the children are motivated to play the game multiple times, increasing the capability of the physical therapy and helping them overcome their problem.
