Unleashing the Power of Play!

We believe in transforming the lives of children with cerebral palsy and their families. Our mission is to enhance their quality of life by providing innovative and engaging solutions for home-based therapies. We understand the importance of daily exercises in improving muscle mobility and preventing spasticity of the hand. That’s why we’re dedicated to making therapy accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

Traditional therapy tools can be expensive and complex, often limited to rehabilitation centers. But we’re here to change that. By harnessing the power of cutting-edge technologies like virtual reality, motion sensing, and interactive gaming, we’re researching the way therapy is experienced. These tools not only target motor skills but also create an immersive environment that captivates the imagination and keeps children motivated.

What sets us apart is our focus on smart toys. Unlike typical games with predefined rules and outcomes, our toys encourage open-ended play, fostering creativity and imagination. Through our Research through Design (RtD) approach, we continuously iterate on prototypes, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in therapy and knowledge generation. This research project is a collaboration between renowned institutions like the Digital Society School, the Civic Interaction Design and the Digital Life Centre research groups at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the University of Twente, the Sint Maartenskliniek, and the Roessingh Rehabilitation Centre. Together, we’re advancing the understanding of motivation and playfulness in therapy assisted by new technologies.

Join us on this exciting journey as we unlock the potential of play to transform lives. Together, we can create a world where therapy becomes a joyful adventure. Discover the power of Toys4Therapy today!
