Since Motitech was established in Norway (2013), our mission has been to support seniors to be more physically, mentally, and socially active and to age well.
Over 16,000 seniors at hundreds of care communities all over the world are benefitting from Motiview. Currently, people from Europe, North America, Australia, and Asia “travel” the world, recalling fond memories and creating new ones – kilometer by kilometer.
Motiview was a result of a successful project by the Agency for Nursing Homes in Bergen Norway, with the hope of improving the lives of seniors including those living with dementia through physical activity. They wanted to see whether the increased physical activity through cycling would affect the behaviours and psychological symptoms in relation to dementia.
A Brief History of Motitech
Motitech is the Norwegian startup that empowers seniors including those living with dementia to become more active. We aim to significantly impact people around the world, empowering them to age well by increasing their quality of life through enabling physical activity, mental stimulation and social connectedness. Based on a successful project by the Agency for Nursing Homes in Bergen (Norway), Motitech was founded in 2013 by Jon Ingar Kjenes. The project aimed to improve the lives of seniors and those living with dementia through physical activity. They wanted to see whether the increased physical activity through cycling would affect the behaviour and psychological symptoms in relation to dementia. Acknowledging that motivation is key – regardless of age, our film crew was invited to make local film routes to inspire their seniors to engage and continue to pedal week after week.
Based on the project’s great success, Motitech launched the video & cycling concept under the name Motiview – with the purpose of increasing life quality for as many seniors as possible around the world, focusing especially on people living in care homes, specifically those living with dementia.
Since Motitech was established, our mission has been to support seniors to be physically, mentally, and socially active and to age well. But our vision is bigger than just selling a product. We want to contribute in changing the game in the senior care sector, and are therefore working to be a catalyst for the community of care staff, volunteers and loved ones to grow. We are continuously trying to build strong and strategic partnerships in the countries we operate in. This helps grow the international Motiview community and the global movement of aging well.
What We Stand For
We aspire to motivate, inspire, invigorate, and to change lives.
All humans are equally valuable, independently of age or functional levels.
We facilitate people to live through meaningful moments.
We focus on abilities instead of disabilities.
These key drivers are reflecting the people we are as individuals and as an organisation – encompassing everything from core values to inspired single moments, within ourselves as well as with the people we work with.
