Abstrakt

This paper presents an initial, qualitative study on how a game based on a mobile robot with an expressive head can be used as a physical activity for elderly. The game is investigated in two independent field studies - one in a nursing home and one in a rehabilitation centre for elderly using an open, exploratory approach. An analysis of the interaction is made based on video recordings, observations and qualitative interviews focusing on the potential of the robot as a rehabilitative application. The primary goal of the study is to observe seniors’ acceptance of
the robot, to obtain knowledge about their game play patterns and get ideas about future improvements of the game.
