Countless elderly have limited mobility due to their age, as well as physical and psychological impairments. However, it is often the case that there is still a lot to be gained with an appropriate workout. Exercise ensures that seniors do not lose muscle mass and actively contributes to a good rhythm. Our interactive playsets are often a perfect addition to the healthcare institutes and are also available in indoor areas.
The Sona is becoming highly popular within the elderly care sector. Not only does it tailor to their physical activity needs, but it also stimulates the brain. We want to help you with the successful start of the new living and exercise garden.
Senior home, Hilverzorg, The Netherlands shows how elderly with (and without) dementia are getting outdoors more frequently and enjoy dancing and moving about together under their Sona. Music, sounds, and instructions trigger the passive elderly (passiveness being part of the dementia condition) to become physically revitalized and mentally alert.
Children with special needs
During the design case of a playground, we often see that the group with special needs or limitations is most often forgotten. Most all-in playgrounds are usually only focused on one barrier or not exciting and challenging enough. Yalp designs play areas that specifically take care of children with disabilities into account.
By making a small adaptation to ‘normal’ playground equipment, children with disabilities can also play without the adjustment on the outside being noticeable. Playground equipment can give extra support, extra grip, or contain a play route low to the ground for children in a wheelchair or with a motor disability. Color markings or contrasts help as a guideline for visually impaired children. And rest areas in and next to the equipment help children with an attention disorder cope with experiences or relieve tension after playing. Having fun is essential to us at Yalp. If you experience pleasure, then you feel safe and wanted. From this safe feeling, you push the boundaries, and opportunities become visible. Yalp’s interactive playsets are accessible, non-stigmatizing, challenging, and exciting for all ages and abilities.

Rehabilitation & recovery
Rehabilitation can be stressful, exhausting, mentally, and physically.
Exercise and play can take your mind off all your troubles, which is helpful even if it’s for one minute. Through smart technology used in the interactive playsets, you make playing and rehabilitating more fun and more challenging.
Most people within care facilities spend relatively too much time inside – and thus remain inactive. It’s a real pity. Exercise helps patients recover faster and also prevents re-injury. Rehabilitation exercise tries to bring patients back to full function, and it does this by restoring muscle strength, stamina, strength, and improving versatility.
“Of course no one wants to stay in the hospital, but you can always try to make things as fun as possible. I certainly think this sports cage contributes to that.”
– Jochem Uytdehaaghe, two-time Olympic ice-skating champion of 2002
