S2E5: Jaime Garcia <>developing serious games for older adults & pregnant women + health gamification research

We have Dr. Jaime Garcia joining us, who is a senior lecturer in games development at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) with a background in software engineering at NeuRA (Neuroscience Research Australia), primarily designing, developing and maintaining fall prevention video games and mobile apps for the Falls Balance Injury Research Centre.

On this episode we explore:
- nostalgia to short-cut onboarding with older adults
- games that can improve and maintain reaction time to reduce the risk of falls and the importance of prototyping
- the art of co-design and recognising the 'subtle signs'
