Cycling through your past

490 views

Published on

“Cycling through your past” is an award-winning project that develops an innovative user-centered solution for nursing home inhabitants to remain physically active in a safe, enjoyable, and motivating environment. The user is able to explore the world outside of the four walls of the nursing home through hyperlapse video projection of 360° images (Google Streetview like) while cycling on a hometrainer. Because the platform can be fully designed around the physical and mental possibilities of each individual user, the nostalgic character of the platform has substantial added value for individuals with declining abilities. First experiences have shown that the platform offers access to secure, personalised, and meaningful physical activity for the elderly users and at the same time increases the social cohesion within the nursing home.
