Physical and Cognitive Training of Children with Down Syndrome Using Video Games

In this study, a video-games based training platform that aims to provide user-specific physical and cognitive tasks is developed so that children with Down Syndrome can continue their training autonomously at home. For this purpose, a set of video games which addresses physical activities (balance and feet coordination) and cognitive tasks (abstraction, memory and word-forming) are being designed and implemented. During the gameplays, center of pressure, brain activity and electrodermal activity measurements are done to identify the specific needs of the child and to tailor a training programme that addresses these difficulties.
