Professor Henrik Hautop Lund and our Center for Playware won Innovation of the year for the Moto Tiles for eldercare and its novel automatic generation of personalized training protocols for seniors with dementia. The Moto Tiles won in the category - Innovation of the Year, Dementia Solution - for what is known as “the Oscars of the eldercare industry”. Also known as the Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards, the awards recognize the best in eldercare product and service delivery. The award was given during the gala for the Oscars of the eldercare industry at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on 15th May 2019.

"This is such a great honor for us, since this is the whole industry and its experts who evaluate that this is the best and most influential innovation as dementia solution. Together with research assistants Yanxin Liu and Massimiliano Leggieri, we have spent a lot of research efforts developing a novel combination of engineering technology, creating human-machine interaction, and using big data to develop a system that can automatically analyze seniors health and provide personalized training protocols to address the individual areas in need of training. This allows a simply way for any therapist and care worker to address the individual needs for physical and cognitive training of seniors with dementia. The award makes me very proud of our research team, and it gives us force and encouragement to bring this kind of playware out worldwide to frail and strong seniors, seniors with dementia, stroke patients, cancer patients, citizens with PTSD, etc.”
