By 2050, it is estimated that 80% of older people will be living in low- and middle-income countries. The older people are seen to limit their physical activity after the age of 65 years. The aim of this study was to explore the influence of sex and age towards active ageing to answer and agree a usability and acceptance of Virtual Reality (VR). This pilot study involved 30 older people who voluntarily participated in March to May 2018. They were asked to use VR for 15 minutes twice a week for 6 weeks. We used ordinal logistic regression to see whether sex and age influenced the answer in the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) questionnaire. SPSS vers.21 was used to perform statistical analyses of the data. We found that most of them have agreed to the acceptance of VR use for each variables of according to the sex and age.
