BikeAround™, a Swedish invention, recognizes the importance of elderly’s overall well-being by combining both physical exercise and mental stimulation. BikeAround™ is uniquely designed to integrate exercising with virtual travelling, which comes with a set of handle and pedal that resembles a normal bike, along with a hemispherical screen and projector for the immersion experience. It is achieved by incorporating street view function in Google Map into the biking system, allowing the elderly to be immersed in a brand new journey that takes the user to anywhere and at anytime, escaping from the boundaries of their physical environment.
BikeAround™ is suitable for people with cognitive disabilities. It can be successfully used in the process of rehabilitation and daily activities. Communication and motor skills, as well as sensory stimulation, can be exercised under conditions that are safe, repeatable and customary. People with physical disabilities, such as balance problems, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injuries or overweight, or those with memory difficulties, can also exercise with BikeAround™. BikeAround™ makes an exercise of visualizing and abstract ability that make interaction with others more pleasurable and meaningful.
