The Activ84Health Explorer is a platform that allows users to freely explore known and new areas while being physically active, from within the safety and comfort of an indoor setting.
The platform uses Google Streetview images and opens a window to the world for the users that can no longer go outside independently. The platform stimulates reminiscence, challenges the user to remain physically active and train their memory, and promotes exploration. The Activ84Health platform relies on cloud-based software, and requires a tablet for navigation (through the touch-screen functionality). Each user has an individual profile, which allows the platform to take into account personal physical and cognitive abilities. Additionally, this allows the collection of individual data on physical activity, dedicated indicators such as duration of a work-out, cadence speed and route choice.
