Abstract : Participatory design (PD) has shown its utility in the field of health care in terms of both efficiency of production and acceptance by care givers and patients. The authors consider the particular case of video game design for health. This field involves the inclusion of extra roles such as game designers to create a more complex design which takes into account not only the health aspects but also the playful mechanisms of video games. For this reason the authors suggest that researches should be done to create a holistic participatory design approach for games for health.
