This study investigates how the player performance can be analyzed when playing exergames. This analysis aims to enable people with different physical capabilities to play against each other and have fair opportunities to win, contrary to the current implementations of exergames where the winner usually is the player who has better performance (e.g. faster response speed). By implementing this technique into exergames, an older adult will be able to play against a younger one and win.
