Abstract

For wheelchair beginners, practicing wheelchairs is tedious and it is difficult to maintain their motivation of exercise, which causes a decrease in the amount of exercise. On the other hand, in recent years, the Somatic Game, is effective in exercise promotion and releasing stress. Also, these game devices and systems using wheelchairs have been reported. However, many games using wheelchairs are video games. It is difficult to do wheelchair's movement practice and gaze at the game display at the same time. And the operation of wheelchair used for game input does not cause the actual movement for wheelchair practice. In this paper, we use a wheelchair device that uses color information of the floor, and implemented a prototype of a game that moved to the required color paper. In response to sound instruction and feedback, we conducted a preliminary experiment to clarify the characteristics of the time and distance when a wheelchair user moved to the required color. We created a game which is based on the experiment's result. And we summarized the user's opinions and experiences in the game through the exhibitions.
