Entertainment Robotics - Moto Tiles
Moto Tiles is winner of Product Innovation of the Year at Asia-Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards 2018.
Moto tiles (www.mototiles.com) are designed as an alternative form of physical rehabilitation exercise to allow elderly citizens to break away from monotonous training programs, and participate in an exercise that is fun and exciting, and therefore more motivating. Qualitative studies show that therapists and elderly find the training with modular interactive tiles fun and highly motivating. Importantly, scientific clinical effect studies have shown that training with the modular tiles has a large effect on the functional abilities of seniors. It is shown that playful training give significant effects with substantially less training sessions than what is needed with more traditional training methods. For instance, balancing test scores increase highly significantly – up to 150% – among older adults (avg 83 years old). Further, brain scanning and cognitive tests of older adults playing on the Moto tiles give evidence to the increased cognitive performance of older adults from playing on the Moto tiles, thereby granting the Hitachi brain science mark.
