The Timocco team enjoyed 3 engaging, exciting days at Naidex! With a total of 10,000 visitors, and an average of 700 visitors a day
The team had a warm welcome from children, parents, therapists and other Naidex visitors. Timocco extends our warmest thanks to our visitors and the enthusiasm they brought to our booth.
A highlight of the show was presenting all of Timocco’s 50 new games with the newly integrated, tobii eyegaze technology. The new technology has opened up possibilities to all Timocco users. When children came to the stand, the Timocco team was able to simply arrange for the most suitable game, regardless of the disability. Dependent on the range of motion, the children used one of three options to play; two of the Timocco balls, one in each hand, a ball on the forehead with a strap around the child’s head, or the child used tobii eye gaze. With tobii, children with little or no mobility were able to enjoy the same games as other children by playing the games with the use of their eyes.
This year had many interesting events. To start, Timocco was eager to display the new release of Timocco Online, a therapeutic gaming device that integrates telerehabilitation therapy. To illustrate our new package, Timocco gave 35 packages away to Naidex participants, both parents and therapists. The parents were provided with all of the Timocco games, and the therapist were given the server to supervise and provide therapy to the children that play the Timocco games from a remote location. The parents are now able to openly communicate and monitor the therapy provided by the child’s Occupational Therapist. If the parent did not have an OT for the child, Timocco provided one through the telerehabilitation server.
In addition to fascinating presentations and engaging activities with customers, Timocco also found a topic of great interest during the Naidex visit. Spending three days with Occupational Therapists from different corners of the UK, Timocco found ways in which to best assist this practice, as there are many challenges that are present for becoming an OT within such regions. As the Timocco team understood this from parents and professionals alike, it was understood that pro-action was needed.
Timocco has created Timocco Online as an efficient therapeutic tool for professionals and parents. By providing parents with direct access to their OT, or providing an OT to the parents who don’t already work with one, a foundation of proven and efficient therapy provided by an OT to the child is revealed. This assists the parents when turning to the government for a refinement of policy.
Timocco recognizes the need for solid therapy for children and is pleased to assist parents and professionals in their continued endeavors to do so.
The Timocco team was met with an abundance of enthusiasm, support, and interest in the Timocco games. We send our most sincere thanks to the children, parents, therapists, and most notably, the great people at Naidex.
