Motion-based video games for older adults have become increasingly popular as they are a means of providing physical activity for senior citizens. In this context, it is important to ensure that motion-based game controls are accessible to older adults, and that they can apply them in a safe and enjoyable manner. In this paper, we provide an overview of sedentary and motion-based game controls for older adults, we show how full-body motion-based game input can be designed to be suitable for institutionalized older adults, and we outline potential applications of motion-based systems for senior citizens with a focus on video games, applications for therapy, and projects beyond games.
