Forget going for a walk: Why the Wii workout ‘is best exercise for over-50s’ Computer exercise work-out games give the over 50s a healthier brain as well as body, a new study has found.

The exergames helped to protect the player from cognitive decline, the researchers from Union College, New York, claim.
