The Exergame Network (TEN) held the first ever public voting for awards relating to active video games with results announced this week. Of the fifteen award categories, Gamercize products were nominated for Best Physical Education Exergame, Best Competition Exergame, Best Group Exergame and Best Brain (Training) Exergame.
The Gamercize Pro-Sport range, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, was the public choice for Best Physical Education and Best Competition Exergame of 2010. The international awards reflect public recognition of Gamercize used in schools around the world, available to educators with distribution hubs in America, Middle East, Asia and Europe.
"The nominations and awards mean a lot to Gamercize, and are testament to the hard work everyone has put into the company, our partners and distributors over the last five years. The awards mean a great deal to me personally being public votes; my goal is to make a difference to the young people of today and help them lead a healthy life rather than be an obesity statistic. I think we've demonstrated we can achieve this goal, and the recognition through these awards will encourage us to keep expanding the benefits of Gamercize to more and more children. Thank you to everyone who voted for us!" says Gamercize Founder and CEO Richard Coshott.
The effectiveness of Gamercize in schools that these awards recognise is currently being tested in the biggest pilot of its kind in schools in Westminster, London The project measures health, fitness and cognitive outcomes from getting kids active with Gamercize, covering five schools over three years in partnership with top industry consultants such as, Dr Ernie Medina, Stephen Yang and Judy Shasek under the lead of Dr Michael Duncan.
Results in real world operation from the Westminster Project are expected to ratify research study results that have proven Gamercize as effective in terms of both energy expenditure and sustainability for health impact.
