Motiview For Preventative Care
Motiview technology allows users - typically, seniors and adults living with dementia - to cycle down memory lane, providing videos and soundtracks to accompany their exercise. The videos of familiar cities and locations have a number of benefits for residents in long-term care homes, including improved memory and faster rehabilitation following an injury or surgery.
Rehabilitation, however, isn’t the only way Motiview can help. The technology has also been used in preventative care. Here are some ways Motiview can make a difference early on.
A Royal Ride Down Memory Lane
In February of 2018, at an event in Norway highlighting innovative start-up companies, Motiview was put to the test by none other than Prince William himself.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on their first official visit to Norway when they stopped by the innovation fair. As Prince William began pedalling, it was soon clear they were in familiar territory, cycling through the streets of St. Andrews.
“You’re bringing us down memory lane,” the Duchess said.

2018 Road Worlds for Seniors International Champion Norman Côté Wins Bruyère Village Intramurals Cycling Championships
Although he was an athlete all his life, Norman Côté uses Motiview to stay motivated to be active and committed to his cycling sessions, and as a result he was able to push hard at the finish line to capture the title of Men’s Champion for the Road Worlds for Seniors Championship in 2018.
Our Motiview solution encourages older adults to increase physical activity through the power of reminiscence. We have seen incredible commitment from our cyclists as Motiview turns “older adults and those living with dementia into dedicated athletes”.
Norman added to his medal collection last weekend at Bruyère Village in Ottawa, Ontario, after winning the men’s category of their Intramurals Cycling Championships.

In fact, Motiview provides a host of benefits to seniors and adults living with dementia, many of them immediate. Here are a few benefits to watch for when Motiview enters care facilities.
