Aistihuonekokeilu käynnissä – yhteistyössä Forum Virium Helsinki

OiOi on yhteistyössä Helsingin kaupungin innovaatioyhtiö Forum Virium Helsingin, Kustaankartanon Seniorikeskuksen ja Helsingin Palvelukeskuksen kanssa toteuttanut digitaalisen ja multisensorisen aistihuoneen muistisairaiden ikäihmisten hoivan tueksi Kustaankartanon seniorikeskuksessa. Tavoitteenamme on parantaa muistisairaiden ikäihmisten elämänlaatua ja tutkia mahdollisuutta korvata lääkehoitoa rauhoittavilla elämyksillä.

“Aistihuone tuo virkistystä ja vaihtelua, siellä voi sukeltaa seikkailuun, nauttia luonnon kauneudesta ja rauhasta tai heittäytyä hassuttelemaan, maalaamaan taidetta tai leikkimään sadepisaroilla. Aistihuone tuo valtaisan valikoiman erilaisia mahdollisuuksia löytää ilon aiheita, hymyä ja onnistumisia, herättää muistoja ja rauhoittaa mieltä. Vastaavaa huonetta ei löydy muualta Pohjoismaista ja se on herättänyt kovasti kansainvälistä kiinnostusta”, kertoo Kustaankartanon seniorikeskuksen osastonhoitaja Jaana Pilvinen.

”Meillä oli jo käytännön kokemusta siitä, että virtuaaliluontotuotteemme vaikuttaa positiivisesti rentoutumiseen, palautumiseen ja stressitasojen laskuun. Myös tuoreet tutkimukset tukevat tätä vaikutusta. Parasta on ollut nähdä, että aistihuone on aidosti merkityksellinen palvelutalon asukkaille ja myös henkilökunnalle työssä jaksamisen kannalta. Tämä on myös malliesimerkki siitä, miten jo olemassaolevia tiloja voidaan helposti muuttaa elämyksellisiksi. On ollut hienoa päästä mukaan tähän kokeiluun”, toteaa yrityksemme toinen perustaja Sami Kämppi.

Aistihuoneen toteutuksessa on käytetty muun muassa seuraavia tuotteitamme:
Virtuaaliluonto ja Elämysseinä.

New team member in OiOi

We are delighted to announce that we have a new team member in OiOi. She is Meeri Mäkäräinen who strengthens our scale of skills to create unique and meaningful interactive installations. Just few months ago she had the defence of her dissertation. We are glad to have the opportunity to work with her.

Here is views written by Meeri herself:

“Last November, I defended my doctoral thesis titled “Blending and Exaggeration of Animated Facial Expressions of Emotion” at Aalto University. My thesis focused on ways to create emotionally believable facial animation for characters in movies, games or virtual worlds. Now it is time to move on to researching how expressive characters in smart spaces could be used for supporting the development of social and emotional skills of children. I am really excited to start my work as a postdoc at OiOi!”

Immersive and interactive Game Walls in the Moomin Snowcastle Finland

We created two immersive and interactive game walls for Moomin Snowcastle Finland in Rovaniemi, Arctic Circle. There is a Moomin Midwinter game wall. Moomintroll and Little My are adventuring in the winter landscape. The other game wall is about painting Auroras – so it is called Aurora Wall. Both of the walls are made of snow.
