Members of a silver generation have relatively lower ability of perception, learning and mobility due to physical decline. The need to develop and provide game contents to elderly people is emerging to help them maintain physical and mental health, to utilize leisure time and engage in healthy activities. In this research, functional game contents are proposed that involve overall physical exercise with focus on upper body muscles to promote health and leisure activity of elderly people. The proposed content is a 'rowing game' that helps to use upper body muscles, with application of interactive interface and wireless acceleration sensor for easy use. In the rowing game, two pairs of wireless acceleration sensors perceive acceleration value of a player's movement, and a parameter can be generated by identifying pattern of movement. Physical characteristics of elderly people need to be considered in designing game contents to facilitate game operation.
