Road Worlds for Seniors
The Road Worlds for Seniors is a concept developed by Motitech and was hosted for the first time in 2017.
It is an annual competition, but most of all it is a great opportunity to focus on the importance of physical activity for older adults and people with dementia.
In 2018, Road Worlds for Seniors had 2,500 participants from six countries.
FIRST OFFICE IN CANADA ESTABLISHED
The Norwegian firm Motitech designing tech to help aging adults stay active has landed in Ottawa, marking the firm’s first North American footprint.

2,500 PARTICIPANTS FROM SIX COUNTRIES
In total the participants cycled over 52,000 km in the four weeks of competition. A fantastic effort!
Quality of life and coping are closely linked, and coping is a factor of great importance to quality of life. Concentration is thus also a motivation factor for training.
It has been shown that the fitness experience for the elderly can be improved by using appropriate music for the activity.
Research shows that memory stimulation can contribute to increasing memory in persons with mild cognitive impairment. An important part of daily life at nursing homes is to work with memory recall in patients with dementia.
Exercise bikes with motor can open for great opportunities for people who are very little active. Motorized cycling can help to make movements otherwise it would not be clear and such training could be a necessary option to train coordination and rhythm in the movement pattern.
Today, there are around 75,000 people living with a dementia diagnosis in Norway. It has been shown that exercise can be a possible contributor to postponing the onset of dementia Alzheimer's disease. In addition, training helps increase the cognitive function of already affected dementia patients.
It has been shown that elderly in nursing homes that exercises to a greater extent maintain physical function than those who do not. Even moderate physical activity is improving the health and functional ability of the elderly. In addition, it reduces the risk of age diseases that affect the aging process.
