The project develops an integrated theratainment solution for care, rehab and diagnostics. PLAYTIME motivates in a playful manner to perform personalized emotion-oriented exercise units to stimulate cognitive processes, to address physical activities and foster social inclusion. The objective is to motivate dementia users to enter a positive feedback cycle of periodic training with sensors that enable diagnostics on a daily basis, and to receive recommendations on the basis of these data that propose more personalized and better suited exercises for improved training.
