September is World ALZ Month, and TRAZER’s continuous innovation stands out in the senior living space for positively impacting the livelihood, wellbeing, and longevity of seniors in our partnered communities.
Earlier this year we had the pleasure of hosting a webinar on the topic of “The Future of Senior Living, Healthcare, and Technology” with Senior Living Executive, Josh Crisp of Solinity. You can learn more about Josh and Solinity, as well as catch the replay with the link below. Here are some highlights from the webinar from TRAZER’s President and COO’s perspective:
“Today there are several neuro-cognitive related diseases that can slowly lead to diminished functional movement resulting in falls, injuries, fatigue, and ultimately lack of independence.
Over the years of my clinical practice, I observed TRAZER being utilized in Memory Care communities where residents may be living with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Stroke, and other brain related pathologies requiring constant healthcare support and care.
It is unfortunate to see so many seniors living in an environment where their independence is limited, their mobility is limited, and they are at risk of injuries to themselves because they spend so little time being mobile.
TRAZER brings a new element to their daily tasks. It engages them in a safe and purposeful augmented reality encouraging functional movement patterns, stimulating neurotransmitters and feel-good hormones, elevating their heart rate, and providing them with a fun therapeutic activity.
I have seen improvement in body postures, biomechanics, smiles on otherwise flat affective faces, laughter, stimulated conversations, reductions in falls and an overall sense of heightened enthusiasm. Family members and care providers report reductions in negative behaviors, reduced outbursts, improved speech and verbal interactions, diminished tremors, increased appetites, better sleep patterns and safer ambulation.
There is no doubt in my mind that TRAZER provides a holistic value to the lives of our Seniors and those learning to live with chronic neuro-cognitive diseases. It has been said many times over; “movement is medicine” and TRAZER is the perfect prescription.” – Dr. Eric M. DeYoung, TRAZER President and COO.
