Active@Home: new games tested by volunteers

Promotion of physical activity at home and fall prevention are the aims of the Active@Home project.

Active@Home is under development at Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS, along with Unie KBO, Comfort Keepers Portugal, ETH Zurich and MIRALab SARL. Interactive games for motor-cognitive training were developed. These games enable older adults to do exercises in a joyful and entertaining manner.

A session of tests took place at Fraunhofer. COLABORAR organised the session and counted with the participation of older adults in the network.  They executed exercises of dance and Tai-chi while using motion sensors in the body to monitor their movements.

Participants had fun and gave valuable insights that we used for technology assessment.
