Elior UK launches interactive sensory tables into its retirement living and care estate
The Mobi interactive sensory table is a fully portable projection system which can be used on any surface – a table, the floor or a bed - and users can engage in over 150 different activities ranging from painting flowers and walking through fish filled water to playing games such as football or shove penny. With emphasis on motion-activation, the inclusive sensory activities reward any level of participation and help to engage and motivate all generations on any surface.
Laura Tighe, Elior’s Managing Director for Health, Care and Residential Living, said: “We are always looking for innovative ways to enhance our offering for our clients and their residents and these interactive tables are a wonderful way to enrich the residents’ day and create a fun way for our team to interact with the residents in their care.”
Deborah Kenny, Elior’s Senior Contract Manager for Anchor, said: “The response was fantastic at the locations where we trialled this incredible system. The tables instigated interaction, movement and positive engagement and had such an uplifting effect on many of the residents and even positively changed the behaviour of some residents.”
Kevin Riley at OMi, who designed this interactive sensory projection system, said: ‘The Mobii magic table was the first truly mobile motion-activated projection system that can project an expanding range of activities on to any horizontal surface at the touch of a button. We are delighted by the positive impact that our tables have on those who use them, especially individuals suffering from dementia.”
Pete Newman, Catering Contracts Manager at Anchor, said: “We were excited to trial these interactive sensory tables at our extra care locations. The feedback from the residents was wonderful and our care teams were delighted to see the joy and positive impact created by this innovative and engaging projection system.”
The Mobi interactive sensory table won the National Dementia Care Outstanding Project Award in 2018 for the opportunities and benefits that it created for people at all stages of dementia.
