Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) March 18, 2016
Timocco is pleased to announce a collaboration with Cincinnati Children's Hospital to advance its web-based interactive therapy program for children with special needs.
In continuing their reputation for innovative, forward-thinking pediatric medical care, Cincinnati Children's is developing skills based functional therapy plans based on Timocco's platform. This will accelerate a child's treatment through the development of more effective therapy services.
“We are very excited to collaborate with the Timocco team,” said Karen Harpster, PhD, occupational therapist at Cincinnati Children’s. “Our goal is to improve the functional performance of the children that we serve. Children find Timocco engaging and fun, a perfect way to enhance their therapy plan of care.”
By utilizing Timocco's data-tracking ability, children are able to continue their therapeutic services upon leaving the hospital. Timocco delivers a wide range of motion-activated therapy which develops motor, cognitive and communication skills based on a child's individual needs. Therapy is delivered through over 50 games, creating a result-oriented platform for therapists.
The child is more engaged and willing to actively participate in their therapy at home by playing Timocco's fun interactive games without realizing the wide range of skills they are developing. With numerous progress reports generated each time the child plays Timocco, Cincinnati Children's will have the ability to monitor a child's skill development as they continue to provide excellent on-going care.
“This is an amazing opportunity to develop therapy plans with one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals. Children with special needs around the globe will be motivated to practice developmental skills and reach their goals based on the therapy plans we develop together with Cincinnati Children's,” said Eran Arden, Timocco’s CEO.
Timocco is a motion-detecting gaming environment that helps support the development of motor, cognitive, and communication skills in children with disabilities. Timocco can be used across all environments, including school, clinics and hospitals. Our EP-based, functional skills Plans help make Timocco easy to implement and track progress data.
