Magic Table

Magic Table

The Magic Table (Tovertafel) is a fun care innovation designed for use by people with dementia, autism and additional learning needs or a cognitive impairment. It consists of a series of interactive light games that are projected on to a table and infrared sensors respond to the hand and arm movement of the players.

The aim of the Magic Table is to create "moments of joy" for the users as well as increasing physical and cognitive activity.  Using the Magic Table can bring generations together and create treasured moments with family members and carers.  The games are all about enjoyment and wonder and respond to even the smallest movements. Some of the games can be used to trigger memories and reminiscence and to start conversations. Others can help teach about taking turns and help improve co-ordination. Playing the games in a group can improve social interaction as well as being a fun activity.
