Computer science, psychology, and other researchers from North America, Australia, Europe, Japan, and Brazil offer 23 chapters on the use of games and game components and principles in healthcare to improve health and wellness.

They also cover various related topics: applications in motor and speech rehabilitation, including cognitive decline; commercial exergames and their use in interventions for seniors, young people, and others; the use of serious games in psychiatry for posttraumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, and selective mutism; the use of games to establish healthy dietary habits for people with diabetes, school children, and to combat childhood obesity; and the use of serious games with blind travelers and dexterity training.
