20 Jun Care Trial in partnership with University of Hertfordshire and Tara’s Retreat B&M Care Home St. Albans

We were delighted that Tara’s Retreat Care Home ( part of B&M care group of homes who specialise in dementia) agreed to undertake a Care Trial with us in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire to assess the impact of our omiVista Mobii System on the lives of those with dementia and other age-related needs.

 

The Trial ran from March 2nd till June 2nd this year and assessed changes in the resident’s overall mood, physical dexterity/energy levels, willingness to communicate and socialise and their enjoyment of the wide-ranging activities the Mobii system offered.

 

Activities Coordinator Tamara used the University’s questionnaires each time the system was used and evaluated the responses accordingly.

 

Some of the main findings regarding the different Apps/Activities:

 

The Catching apps eg chickens laying eggs and ice-cream chase were particularly beneficial in encouraging physical movement and social interaction/teamwork, with many residents standing up and stretching to complete the task as well as encouraging other residents to catch items that moved towards them.

The Therapeutic Colouring apps were particularly good for bringing smiles, calming agitated residents and encouraging large sweeping arm movements.

The Reminiscence apps helped to promote interesting discussions about childhood memories, holidays, sweets and shops.

Scattering rose petals, bees, top hats, balloons etc with catchy memorable music also encouraged active participation and ‘feel good’ responses including group sing songs and lots of laughter.

A big thankyou to all the staff and residents of Tara’s Retreat for their participation in this trial and their wonderful responses to our technology. We think the photos speak for themselves!

03 Oct Introducing our OMi Ambassador Noah Wall #TheBoyWithNoBrain

Here at OM interactive we are very proud to have Noah Wall as our Ambassador. In one of the most moving episodes of DIYSOS ever, the nation wept as they watched Noah move independently over our sensory floor for the first time. Noah is a fantastic Ambassador for us because he has defied all medical opinion to achieve far more than was ever thought possible with just 2% functioning brain tissue.

 

As part of the DIYSOS Big Build,  the team at OMinteractive were happy to provide the family with the latest in sensory technology equipment, an omiVista interactive floor  to encourage & stimulate Noah who was born with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, hip dysplasia and is paralysed from the waist down. Noah’s daily use of the system and his family’s unending encouragement over the last few years have enabled 4 year old Noah to make the most incredible advances both mentally and physically.

 

He is such an inspiring, cheerful, talkative boy who loves music and attends mainstream school one day a week.

 

Don’t miss the full moving story of #TheBoyWhoGrewABrain on Oct 11th @ 10pm Channel 5 next week. Noah we are so proud!
