Resumé

This paper describes the initial findings of a multimodal game which has been implemented on a humanoid robot platform and tested with seniors suffering
from dementia. Physical and cognitive activities can improve the overall wellbeing of seniors, but it is often difficult to motivate seniors with dementia to train frequently and long enough using traditional training exercises. The idea of the presented concept is that robot games potentially can supplement occupational- or physiotherapists to promote more frequent and longer periods of training.
The implemented multimodal game is based on tactile feedback and includes animated gestures and sounds. The game has been tested in a nursing home with four seniors suffering from moderate to severe dementia.
