The FRED game is a technological solution designed as a type of exergame for improvement in frailty in elderly persons, in which the physiotherapist, designed the contents of the game while at the same time taking into account both specific movements for developing physical exercise and the devising of different scenarios in which these movements could be developed, including biofeedback to ensure that the game is performed under cardio-healthy conditions. These scenarios are developed in a logical order to ensure that the individuals who perform them find a meaning to the activity. Each movement is designed by taking into account both biomechanical and neuromotor parameters and evidence features of sufficient extent to be recognised by the Kinect sensor.
