The aim of the Movenator project is to develop a game-intervention for 10 to 13 years old pre-adolescents, and to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of the intervention. The goal of the Movenator project is to promote the physical activity (PA) and PA self-efficacy of pre-adolescents.

Game has been developed together with pre-adolescents, multidisciplinary team and with national and international collaboration. The feasibility of the game showed positive results and currently we are evaluating the effectiveness of the game-intervention (RCT-study/ Identifier:NCT03279497).

Movenator is part of the project entity called Your JOYce.
WellWe project is funded by research funding granted by Juho Vainio Foundation (Juho Vainion säätiö),TYKS-foundation (TYKS-säätiö) and University of Turku.
