Cooperation with the municipality of Bergen
Motitech has its sources from a project cooperation with the municipality of Bergen. The project goal was to motivate elder and elder people with dementia to be more active. Throughout the project, Motiview was tested at six institutions in 2012 and 2013. The results were outstanding, hence 2013 became the origin of Motitech AS.
The use of Motiview has proven to come with a great amount of health benefits such as; better mobility, less fall, increased appetite, reduction of obesity, better sleep, less medication, and in general a better everyday living. Furthermore, Motitech is currently close to finish a research project in Canada to document the impact Motiview brings, as well as a 3-year tryout project in England.
