When:

Where: Webinar Cost: Free

How can an audio-visual multimedia tool promote physical activity among older adults in long-term care homes? This webinar will present the results of a multi-site study describing residents’ engagement in a cycling activity when using an audio-visual multimedia system (Motiview) that simulates cycling trips across various destinations worldwide.
Participants will learn about:
a) The benefits of activity in long term care;
b) How a robust A/V technology can be used to support activity engagement;
c) How to implement a program of participation built around activity and reminiscence using a volunteer model.
Project Funding provided by the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation and Innovation Norway.
