What is a Tovertafel?

The Tovertafel Original was developed for and with people in the moderate to severe stages of dementia. The interactive games help to break through apathy by stimulating both physical and cognitive activity by encouraging social interaction. Moreover, the Tovertafel creates treasured moments with family members and carers. These games are all about enjoyment and wonder!

The Tovertafel is a little box that can be mounted on the ceiling, for instance above the dining room table of a care home. Inside the box is a high-quality projector, infrared sensors, a speaker and processor that work together to project the games onto the table. Because the colourful objects respond to hand and arm movements, residents get to play with the light itself.
