Abstract

Exergames are increasingly being proposed for physical rehabilitation in chronic pain. They can be engaging, fun and can facilitate the setting of targets and evaluating performances through body movement tracking and multimodal feedback. While these attributes are important, it is also essential that psychological factors that lead to avoidance of physical activity are addressed in the game design. Anxiety about increased pain and/or of further damage often causes people to behave in a self-protective manner (e.g., guarding movement) and to avoid particular movements. Protective behaviour may itself cause increased pain or strain. In this paper we investigate the possibility to automatically detect such behavior. Automatic detection of protective behaviour can be used to adapt the exergame at run time to alleviate anxiety and increase treatment efficacy.
