Pokemon Go - Simple game or health intervention?

After reviewing a couple of research studies on the latest exergaming craze - Pokemon Go

(Summer 2016), it was interesting to see this study released in the British Medical Journal regarding the health impact of playing.

Results

  • NSD in physical activity (steps) PG players vs non-PG players in 6 week trial
  • SD in steps taken in early weeks

Discussion

  • As in many exergaming studies, the short-term always bodes well for the interaction and physical activity, however the long term effects are always (almost) weaker and sometimes NSD.
