Mobii Magic Surface is a huge hit in MacIntyre Supported Living Services/in News/by Simon Gurney
MacIntyre are a charity that support and empower young adults with learning disabilities to live lives that make sense to them. We are thrilled to hear that our Mobii Magic Surface has brought so much joy to their Supported Living schemes across Shropshire kindly provided by Shropshire Adult Care Services.
MacIntyre Area Manager Rowan Jackson told us:
‘The Mobii Magic Surface Projector has been just amazing and is in huge demand across all our services’.
She goes on to explain that many of the people they support are non-verbal, but it is clear from their ‘giggles, smiles and general excitement’ how much they are ‘enjoying interacting with the games, music and activities.’
One of the unexpected benefits, she tells us, has been the extra exercise it has encouraged, with one gentleman losing a significant amount of excess weight due to his regular use of the system. Rowan said the feedback they’ve received from staff running the sessions has been hugely positive with many commenting on ‘how easy it is to use and how much they’ve enjoyed seeing the fun it brings given the restricted times everyone is living in’.MacIntyre, Shropshire have written to tell us that the Mobii portable projector system has been a ‘huge success and is enjoyed by everyone’. They currently share one of our Mobii mobile systems across many services but are hopeful that they will be able to have more systems to support the people they work with soon.
