Bingocize: A Novel Mobile Application for Older Adult Health

Brief description of study

This study tests the effectiveness of using a new mobile application (Bingocize) to improve older adults' (a) adherence to an engaging exercise program, and (b) aspects of functional performance, health knowledge, dietary habits, and cognition.

Detailed Study Description

Health-promoting interventions designed to improve physical and mental fitness can help reduce health care costs; they can also help maintain, or even improve, older adults' quality of life. However, getting older adults to adhere to health-promoting exercise interventions remains difficult because such programs are often perceived as being time-consuming, painful, or unenjoyable. The present study's objective is to investigate the effectiveness of a novel technological exercise intervention program for older adults (Bingocize); in doing so, the program has the potential to improve older adults' independence and quality of life. Older adults will participate in a pre/post-intervention design with random assignment to either the experimental or one of three comparison/control groups; each group will play Bingocize in a social setting with other older adults. Participants in the experimental group will use the app to engage in twice-weekly Bingocize sessions for twelve weeks (i.e., Bingo+Exercise+Health Education); control groups will also use the app for twelve weeks but for either health education-only, exercise-only, or bingo-only.
