The aim of this study was to compare users' acceptance and experience through psychological questionnaires for two gaming platforms when used as an exercise tool. Thirty-three participants were recruited from the population of Teesside University, UK. Participants were randomly allocated to either exercise using the Interactive Rehabilitation and Exercise system, or the Nintendo Wii. Following a four-week exercise programme, no significant differences were found between gaming platforms. However, there were significant increases in acceptance and experience.
