Healthcare technology company Tover has released the second incarnation of its Tovertafel cognitive stimulation system.
Tovertafel (or ‘magic table’ in Dutch) 2 offers what the company called evidence-based play therapy for both dementia sufferers and people with learning difficulties.
Its makers claim the system is proven to improve wellbeing and quality of life for both groups.
With only 23% of those living with dementia currently able to access socially interactive games to maintain cognitive function, Tovertafel 2 is designed to be more widely accessible, especially during the pandemic.
Its click-and-ready mounting system means it can be installed in care homes and libraries with no need for specialist support.
Tover aims to reach one million players per day by 2030 in care and education, and will soon boast new updates, features and games.
Tovertafel creator, Hester Anderiesen Le Riche, commented: “The Tovertafel 2 represents the next generation of technology for people living with cognitive challenges.
“We are excited to see it rolled out across the UK in the coming weeks and months as we hope to create more moments of happiness for those living with cognitive challenges, and their family members, friends and carers.
“By updating our technology, the Tovertafel 2 will be more accessible for care homes and libraries to install and upgrade across the UK.
“We can then progress with our goal to create a more caring and inclusive world for people living with cognitive challenges.”
