SMARTfit Combats Childhood Obesity Fitness Games
More kids than ever are becoming inactive and spending more time in front of television and playing video games. We are in the midst of a remarkable technological age, but the question is what to do with all the technology that we have before us. Kids need to take advantage of groundbreaking tech, like SMARTfit, to actually become more active in our digital age.
The key to SMARTfit’s ability to engage participation lies in the fact that kids view it as games rather than a workout. The fact that they burn calories at a rapid rate is a consequence of social engagement and team play.
According to a study by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education Only one in three children are physically active every day.1 With children now spending more than seven and a half hours a day in front of a screen (e.g., TV, video games, computer)2 they are not getting the exercise and mental stimulation needed for optimal health.
We are all born with billions of stem cells which hold the potential for a healthy brain and neurological system but it takes stimulation – the right kind at the right time to ensure this happens. Early inactivity and its effects on child development produce both physical and intellectual consequences that are calling for a mainstream approach to remedy as OT is only available for those with money to pay for individual therapy.
