Bike Around pairs a stationary bike with Google Street View to take dementia residents on a virtual ride down memory lane. You input a street address or location that means something to the residents, a childhood home for instance, and then use the handlebars and pedals to "bike around" old neighborhoods. Our strongest memories are tied to location and Bike Around taps into this idea by combining mental simulation from surrounding the resident with places they recognize and physical stimulation from pedaling and steering.

Bruyère Continuing Care is partnering with other senior care partners in Ontario and with a Norwegian Industry partner, Motitech AS to study the added value of a motivational healthcare solution called Motiview that may encourage participation in cycling activity for individuals in Long Term Care settings.

Research shows that increasing physical activity for these individuals may provide an enjoyable and fulfilling activity, improve mobility, mood, and sleep and reduce fall risks!

Projet de recherche mobilisateur sur l’activité physique

Soins continus Bruyère s’associe à d’autres organismes de soins aux aînés en Ontario et à la société norvégienne Motitech AS pour étudier la valeur ajoutée de Motiview, une solution motivatrice en soins de santé qui pourrait encourager les personnes en foyer de soins de longue durée à s’adonner à une activité cycliste. Certains de nos résidents passent beaucoup de temps à ne rien faire, ont l’humeur maussade et sont atteints de démence. La recherche montre que l’augmentation de l’activité physique chez ces personnes pourrait leur apporter du plaisir et leur permettre de s’épanouir dans une activité susceptible d’améliorer leur mobilité, leur humeur et leur sommeil en plus de réduire les risques de chutes!
