Google’s New Project BikeAround Commemorates World Alzheimer’s Day

Google helps dementia patients by introducing BikeAround to trigger their memories back.

The technology company released a film about BikeAround on World Alzheimer’s Day and the project was developed at Health Technology Centre of Halland. jDome® BikeAround ™ is a training cycle tool that actively enables both heart and brain with the help of innovative technology such as virtual reality. So, with the help of Google Street View, Google has invented the device to help Alzheimer’s patients.

Because it’s often recommended that dementia patients should perform physical activities to stimulate both physical and mental health, finding a way to motivate the elderly to exercise more in a safe and secure way is the starting point of the project.

Manager at Health Technology Centre of Halland, Anne-Christine Hertz says,

It is absolutely amazing that the project gets so much attention. It’s not easy to develop new products for dementia patients, so I hope this film leads to more people getting a chance to try Bike Around.

I have always looked at digitization and technology as a catalyst to open up the world not just to the tech savvy, but also to the elderly, who often live in digital exclusion. We’re excited about having found a way to bring happiness to many people living with dementia and their relatives.

Google is all about taking their social and humanistic projects to the next level- however, we still love getting surprised every time!
