Case study: Activation in a residential care centre
Three years ago Monique moved to the residential care centre de Zonnebloem. In recent years, she has frequently participated actively in various activities and excursions inside and outside the centre. Monique moved completely independently, used no walking aids and was able to push other residents’ wheelchairs. Due to the current COVID pandemic and associated measures, activities within the centre were almost completely reduced.
As a result of this prolonged reduction in activities, Monique’s motor skills have been greatly reduced. Although she does not seem to need a walker at the moment, she currently moves insecurely through the room and often clings to stabilising objects in the room. Monique also seems to be very lonely due to the lack of interaction with both residents and visitors.
Integration Matti within therapy
How can Matti support Monique?
The most important thing is that Monique and the other residents keep moving every day. With Matti, a whole range of motor exercises can be offered in a simple way, around which group activities can be organised. The residents’ movement skills can also be stimulated and monitored in this way.
Monique’s balance can be quantified using the various analysis tools.
See how the game is played and where the settings are adjusted to suit your patient.
To get Monique and the other residents moving in a playful and interactive way, we can use the following exergames on the Matti platform. During these activities, Matti can be placed not only on the floor, but also on a table to stimulate activation of the upper limbs.
