Taiwan-based Ideabus Technology has developed a smart leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) training solutions for seniors, with three products already available to support long-term care for the elderly, including SODA Lohas cognitive machine, BrainRich brain training machine and SPOZ exercise assisting system, according to the firm's chief operating officer Gary Fu.
When showcasing the solutions at the just-concluded Meet Taipei Startup Festival 2018, Fu said that the LTPA training solutions are co-developed with occupational therapists and connected to the cloud for recording, tracing and analyzing the training progress and efficiency of elders.
Fu said Ideabus has shipped some 100 sets of SODA cognition training machines so far in 2018. It is a portable amusing and healing hand pressing system designed on brain plasticity theory to train responsiveness, attention, coordination of elderly users.
The company's BrainRich is developed as a product for elders with dementia risk by training their reaction, concentration, logics and memory. So far the firm has sold 30 sets of the brain training machine.
The SPOZ exercise assisting system is designed to help people do exercise regularly. The company has shipped around 200 sets of this system since it was launched in January 2017, and Fu sees great sales potential for the product in Japan as the company is in talks with Japan's retail channel Bic Camera to sell it there.
