Sydney: Interactive gaming devices can cause injuries ranging from abrasions and sprains to shoulder, ankle and foot injuries. "This study details the different injuries sustained while participating in interactive and traditional video games," said study leader Patrick O`Toole of the American Academy of Paediatrics. "Younger children under the age of 10 should be supervised while video games are being played to prevent bystander injuries, which are more common with interactive games," he added.
There were 604 injuries resulting from traditional games with 92 injuries from the newer interactive games. Of the interactive game injuries, 49 were sustained by males (53.3 percent) and 43 by females (46.7 percent). When compared to the traditional video game group, participants in the interactive group were significantly more likely to injure their shoulder, ankle, and foot. These findings were presented Monday at the American Academy of Paediatrics National Conference and Exhibition in San Francisco, US. IANS
