Clinical Trial Description

Intervention using gaming technology is rapidly expanding in rehabilitation. Xbox 360 Kinect is one of the gaming technology used to improve emotional well-being which involves combating stress and inducing mental relaxation. Xbox 360 Kinect is a hands-free video gaming - where a motion-detected camera is used detecting full body motion while giving an optimal body movement desired for active physical activity. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of using Xbox 360 Kinect in improving sleep quality and mental health among undergraduate healthcare students. A two-armed randomized control trial (RCT) will be conducted. Thirty-six participants will be recruited and will be randomly allocated into the intervention group (playing Xbox 360 Kinect) or the control group (continue their daily life activity). The intervention duration will be approximately 30 minutes per session, three times per week for a total of six weeks. The Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scales Questionnaire (DASS-21) and the Functional Outcome of Sleep Questionnaire (FOSQ-30) will be used in the study at pre-intervention and post-intervention for data comparison analysis. Two-way mixed ANOVA will be used for within group and between group analysis. This study is expected to report the effectiveness of using Xbox 360 Kinect in increasing sleep quality and mental health among undergraduate students. Future study can be replicated among other populations if proven to be successful. ;
