CoSoPhy FX

Three  startups  (Senopi,  SenX,  TMMC)  enter  the  project  with  prototypes  of  their  innovative solutions for: a) providing Virtual Reality (VR) experiences to seniors, b) VR motion-­‐tracking and c) using music to promote health. The prototypes are subjected to usability  testing,  co-­‐design  and  co-­‐creation  workshops,  with  the  help  of  an  end-­‐user  organisation (AkaBer) that promotes the interests of seniors towards the development of innovative solutions, to produce an improved solution that integrates the three initial components  into  a  single  service.  To  investigate  whether  the  use  of  the  service  can  result in health benefits for healthy and high-­‐functioning seniors, a clinical intervention study  is  conducted  at  a  university  hospital  (MUL).  In  parallel,  the  service  is  tested  by  clinician and patient end-­‐users in a rehabilitation clinic (Cato), who produce complementary user feedback, leading to further improvements of the service. The final version of the service is subjected to a final usability test, to assess its market-­‐readiness.


This project is developing an online service to provide scientifically validated virtual reality activities for high-­‐functioning seniors and prolong their functional independence. It addresses multiple issues for numerous stakeholders; most importantly: a) the lack of engaging exercise programs featuring proven, well-­‐documented beneficial effects, that seniors can participate in, on their own, at home; b) the remote monitoring of seniors’ cognitive and physical abilities by their family and doctors; c) optimising resources and revenue in rehabilitation clinics and senior care homes.

Expected Results and Impact:

The project is primarily expected to result in a service that improves certain cognitive and motor abilities in healthy seniors, thereby distancing them further from clinical thresholds for age-­‐related debilitation and prolonging their healthy life years. In parallel, the project is expected to demonstrate the positive financial effects such a service can have on the senior healthcare ecosystem, as well as to provide a platform for scientific research labs to increase their efficiency, monetise their research output and maximise their societal impact.
