The Danish Minister of Health gathers experience and inspiration from far and near to the Government's action plan for dementia. This recently involved a demo of a training programme of motor skills and walking speed at a care center using our Center for Playware's Moto tiles. 

As part of her consultations for a future plan for dementia care, the Minister of Health, Sophie Løhde, visited the implementation of the Moto tiles for elderly with dementia in Furesø municipality (Plejecentret Lillevang) on 14 March 2016. The Moto tiles are developed and implemented by Center for Playware, DTU Electrical Engineering, and Entertainment Robotics in the Patient@home project, and in an implementation effort by several municipalities. The projects aim at mediating playful experiences through interaction with playful technology.
