Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for mortality globally. Especially the "elderly group", who are less active and prone to frailty, sarcopenia, and chronic diseases, resulting in the highest fatality rate of infection. However, research has shown that sarcopenia is reversible and that exercise can halt muscle loss. This study uses Unity3D and Kinect SDK to develop a set of muscle-strength training motion-sensing games for the elderly. Then, the experience of 15 older adults was using the SUS and QUIS scale questionnaires to evaluate the feelings, pleasure, and applicability of the system to the elderly people participating in the interaction. The findings of this study are as follows: (1) Older adults are willing to use technological interactive games and give positive evaluations; (2) older adults have experienced this system three times in a row and have experienced significant growth in muscle strength training performance; (3) Use of the SUS system On the scale, the average of all items is 3.93, indicating that the elderly feel good about the usability of this system; (4) The elderly said that the dynamic visual and sound effects of this system are more attractive to them. Sensing the attention of the exercise process; (5) The average QUIS interaction satisfaction score is 4.25, which means that the elderly are satisfied with the overall feeling of this system. Older adults can use this system to improve their exercise motivation, achieve sensory stimulation and physical activity, and increase exercise fun.
