Post: Apps, Exergames, and AI to Promote Physical Activity in Children and Adolescents- Amanda Staiano, PhD

Technology and screens are widely blamed for contributing to sedentary behavior and stealing time
from physical activity opportunities. But what if we flipped the script and figured out how to get technology
to help us instead of harm us? Dr. Amanda Staiano shares data from her recent RCTs that have
designed apps and used exergames and wearables to engage children and adolescents in physical activity,
as well as a new NIH study that integrates AI chatbots to provide coaching to adolescents to
help them reach their physical activity goals.
