Detailed Description:
This randomized controlled trial explores the efficacy of an 8-week standing exergaming program in people with major neurocognitive disorder (MNCD) residing in long-term care facilities. Fifty inpatients with mild to moderate MNCD will be randomly assigned to three times weekly for eight weeks 15 min of exergaming versus watching preferred music videos. The Montréal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI), Cornell Scale for Depression in Dementia (CSDD), Dementia Quality of Life (DQoL), Katz activities of daily living (ADL) and Instrumental ADL (IADL) are measured at baseline and post intervention.
