25th of September 2015: Research Friday/ Forskarfredag

forskarfredag 1

On research Friday of Linköping University we (Leonie Klompstra,Lisa Hjelmfors and Tiny Jaarsma) presented the HF-Wii study to the public with other innovative research.

First we started of with some physical activity (see picture below).


After 12 o’clock, a lot of people visit to look at the different research within the University. There came a lot of people who played on the Wii computer, from 15 till 78 years old. Everyone was able in a couple of minutes to play bowling. We got some nice feedback: a lot of people thought it was a good solution for heart failure patients to be active at home and play with grandchildren.

Other researcher available presented new gaming possibilities to be active, a platform to explore the human body in detail and a little Robot who could dance. To see the robot dance click here.

We off course had to go on the picture with the robot and were sure that even this robot could be learned to play the Wii (see picture below).


It was a very nice day and a pleasure to make our research more visible!
