|The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the feasibility of a 12-week exergaming dance program for adolescent girls.|
|About the Study|
Can a dance video game help you lose weight and stay healthy?
Teens spend about 3 hours playing video games each week, but most don’t get enough physical activity. Not being physically active contributes to health problems like obesity and heart disease. This study combines dancing, video games, and a full body work-out to test if video games can increase physical activity and promote healthy weight in adolescent girls.
If you are a girl between the ages of 14 and 18, we invite you to find out by participating in a study at Pennington Biomedical Research Center!
Number of visits:
Eligible participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:
The Control Group will not participate in the exergaming and are only expected to come back for the final clinic visit. The Dance Exergaming Group will complete a 12-week program at the Pennington Biomedical Pediatric Clinic. Participants in this group will be asked to come to the Pediatric Clinic 3 times per week for approximately 90 minutes a session, and use the dance program in a friendly group environment. All participants will be offered a free nutritional counseling session at the end of the study.All study-related procedures will be provided at no cost to the participant.
