“Ageing is not an evil to which we have to be subdued, it’s a vocation to which we have to be able to respond.”
John Paul II
The Tover Tafel is an interactive device for the rehabilitation of seniors in mid- and late-stage dementia. It encourages patients to be physically and mentally active, and also engages them in a team work. The equipment is intended for the rehabilitation in elderly care homes. The product was developed in the co-operation with Active Cues from the Netherland.
Interactive light animations displayed on the table respond to palm and hand movements. Games have been developed by Active Cues with the elderly people to suit their needs. Plays are very intuitive, they involve for example shoving aside autumn leaves or bouncing back the ball.
Patients suffering from dementia are usually inactive, apathetic and distancing themselves from society. Such a behavior gradually decreases their cognitive ability and also has a negative effect on their physical, mental and emotional shape.
The Tover Tafel stimulates interaction and maintains player’s interest, which is extremely important in the therapy of people with dementia.
The Tover Tafel is completely safe for use because of the lack of components that could pose a risk to people using interactive table such as mobile rails and mirrors or hanging cables.
The technological process bears an ISO 9001 mark. The Tover Tafel has a 2-year or 4000-hours-of-work warranty whichever comes first.
