On stand SN32 Timocco will be making its third appearance at the BETT Show (11-14th January, London Olympia) and visitors who purchase the product off the stand will benefit from several special show discounts. The unique product has been created to assist with cognitive and motor development of children with a wide range of abilities and ages and is now available in the UK through OM Interactive. Timocco is also delighted to be launching its new content packages at the BETT Show, which are dedicated to improving attention skills for children with ADD/ADHD, LD, ASD, CP and Dyspraxia /DCD, so it promises to be an exciting show all round.
There are three editions of Timocco available: Home, for practicing at home, and two Professional editions, Plus (includes therapist’s tools) and Pro Extended (includes therapist’s tools, database and available for the therapist to supervise and analyze). This range ensures that children of all abilities, regardless of their environment, can benefit from the Timocco experience along with healthcare professionals and SEN teachers.
The Home edition normally retails at £199 but will be available for £149 during the show. This edition provides interactive games based on body motion tracking technology and gives parents a fantastic opportunity to enhance parent and child interaction in a safe, friendly and fun environment. The non-competitive games are played using body movements which are tracked by Timocco’s unique software and hand held body tracking controllers.
To ensure children maintain their interest in Timocco the games are set in different colourful environments such as the sky, the beach and the garden and feature numerous activities including popping bubbles and catching falling fruits. Each game has been carefully designed to ensure every activity helps develop the child’s motor and cognitive skills while at the same time allowing them to have fun. For example, playing with both hands up in the air will strengthen a child’s shoulders and arms while popping bubbles encourages them to use both hands in the correct sequence together, thus improving coordination.
As a child develops and their ability evolves the supervision and analysis software allows you to adapt the games to meet any specific physical or mental requirements which you feel need additional support. The Professional edition has been designed to allow healthcare professionals to adapt the features of Timocco to meet the specific needs of a child’s development.
“We truly believe that this product can make a real difference to children with special needs. The developers of Timocco have a philosophy that all therapy should be fun and seeing the smile on the child’s face along with that of their parents, brothers and sisters is incredibly rewarding” commented Mishka Klotz, Director of OM Interactive.
