BikeAround™

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.

來自瑞典的自由遊健身單車正是為了結合身心的鍛鍊而出現。單車外型設計獨特,除了基本的單車把手及腳踏外,另外會有一個半球體屏幕作投影之用。它採用了我們日常從電話或電腦中Google 地圖的街道實景技術,透過半球體屏幕將真實的街景呈現出來。讓長者頓時忘卻自己身處在四面牆,身心投入整個模擬實景中,過程就像騎真正的單車一樣,隨時隨地開展一場新的旅程。

BikeAround™適用於有認知障礙的人士。它可以廣泛地用於康復及日常活動、溝通和運動技能,以及感官刺激,並可以在安全、可重複和為養成習慣的條件下進行。身體殘疾的人,如平衡問題,腦癱,後天性腦損傷或超重,或有記憶困難的人,也可以使用BikeAround™鍛煉身體。 BikeAround™運用可視化和抽象的能力,使其與他人的互動更愉快和有意義。
