OMi – Motion-Activated Sensory Systems for People with Dementia
We catch up with Mishka Klotz – the Founder and Managing Director of OM interactive (OMi) – to discuss the background and driving forces behind the OMi interactive projector systems.
OMi has a wide range of systems on offer – at the core of which are the omiVista Install (fixed projector system) and omiVista Mobii (mobile projector system – also known as the ‘Mobii Magic Surface’). Each of them is a motion-activated sensory system designed to engage and motivate people with cognitive, physical or sensory impairment.
Mishka describes the phrase ‘motion-activated’ as meaning that every movement over the projected surface produces a real-time change in the projected images and sounds. Unlike a touchscreen – which can be fiddly and difficult to use, especially for older people – the OMi motion-activated systems are very intuitive to use and recognise the smallest movements to produce an augmented response.
