Virtual Cycling

VR, AR, and Motivational Tools

In April of 2018 Bruyère launched Motiview, an innovative technology by Norwegian company Motitech. The goal behind this technology is to promote exercise for older adults in Bruyère’s outpatient rehabilitation and long-term care programs.

Motiview works by positioning patients on a stationary bicycle in front of a television screen that simulates real-life bicycle ride locations from around the world.

This technology can have significant benefits for seniors. Previous studies indicate the technology has helped increase the balance and mobility of patients. BRI researchers are hopeful it can also benefit patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
