A healthy lifestyle, a happier life.
We are getting older, and anybody like stop get old as healthy as possible.
We think of a healthy lifestyle that prevents you should go to a hospital, in a place that is pleasant, accessible and inviting.
More and more health apps and tools are being developed to check your health etc., but not everyone is aware of the available options or find it difficult to the choose from the enormous range of appropriate tools. Urban Clinic takes the time for you to tailor and recommend the best products.
The goal is to get people conscious about healthy living in a pleasant way.
SERIOUS AND ACTIVITY GAMES
Despite their good intentions to go about things differently, many people struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle with healthy diets and sufficient exercise. This is evident from the large number of people who are overweight, obese or suffer from corresponding diseases like diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular conditions.Serious games (games for a purpose) are a novel and promising method to initiate and support behavioural change for an improved health and higher quality of life.
Generally, games are more entertaining than traditional interventions, and accordingly they may lead to higher exposure. What’s more, primary target groups with increased health risks like youths or people with a less prosperous upbringing can feel drawn to this because they are by default the groups who play games more frequently.
Our 500m2 building is host to various disciplines that ensure a healthy ‘body&mind’ in an accessible manner. We focus on physiotherapy, obesity, overall revalidation, and prevention.
There’s a room with game sports for youths, who enjoy gaming but not the traditional gym. The games will allow them to exercise, integrated with many different gaming and therapy elements. The high entertainment value makes them unaware that they’re actually being physical. This is ideal for young people who, for instance, suffer from obesity, but anyone can benefit.
Our goal is to motivate people and change behavior in a fun way.
The elderly can find this just as pleasant a way to exercise, because they are taught to move under supervision, at their own pace and it’s something they can do at home. They want to move more, but remain ill-informed about the latest options and technologies. This is a simple way to get them introduced. Once they have ‘acclimatised’ to the technology, they can purchase the applications for use at home.
The Urban Clinic is an environment where (preventive) health is central. Here we present applied (serious or applied) games in an accessible way that are deployed in the areas of exercise, food and wellness. Everybody can come and visit us.
Urban Clinic is easy accessible to the public, people can come and watch, gather information, try out apps and tools, buy products and / or just good food and relax.
Urban Clinic is a charming place where families, young and old, can enjoy themselves and learn to live healthier lives.
