Dr. Bredehoft conducted research in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Nintendo, and Cal State university San Bernadino (CSUSB). Her study evaluated the effectiveness of exergaming and its impact on physical activity amond adolescents. By measuring caloric expenditure and Metabolic Equivalence of Task (METs) expenditures, she was able to show that exergaming with Nintendo's Wii Sporta was equivalent to brisk walking. A second study showed exergaming positively impacted self efficacy and perceived body image which shows promise for the use of exergaming as a possible gateway back to fitness.
