a box full of memories

The memoreBox

not just for dementia patients

Cycling through the streets as a postman and throwing newspapers into letterboxes, going bowling, motorcycling or playing table tennis – what used to be taken for granted is often no longer so easy in old age. The memoreBox brings these experiences to the nursing home thanks to digital technology.

The player’s movements are transmitted directly to the screen of any commercially available television set, where they can be seen as virtual but realistic events. The games integrate various therapeutic-preventive-rehabilitative elements which have been developed from findings in geriatrics and neuropsychology as well as physiotherapy and music therapy.

The memoreBox can thus reduce the effects of age-related diseases such as dementia and Parkinson’s, reduce the risk of falls and promote inclusion in retirement homes through joint activities.

The memoreBox is scientifically evaluated at the Charité Berlin, the University Hospital Hamburg and at the Humboldt University Berlin on behalf of BARMER.

The Avatars

Friendly accompaniment through the game modules

The memore game modules are easy to use thanks to intuitive gesture control. The player is accompanied by our avatars Anna and Paul. They can be individually selected to act as the main player in the games.

First, we developed Paul, who, based on feedback from our test-players, has been dressed in a more modern fashion over the years. We are happy to incorporate special wishes into the programming.

Since 2018 Anna can also be selected. She pleasantly greets the players and guides them through the different modules. She also enjoys distributing mail and riding motorcycles, just as Paul does.

memore is already played all over Germany and is used in many places as a therapeutic and preventive game console. The memoreBox is mainly used in (partially) inpatient care facilities. Our goal is for as many people as possible to keep physically and mentally fit, and to have fun while doing so.
