About De BeleefTV
De BeleefTV – Digital Activity Table for Care and Health Facilities
The care innovation from the Netherlands is now present in over 700 care and health facilities in five countries. These include nursing homes, homes for the elderly, hospitals and other inpatient facilities of the health system. De BeleefTV is designed for activation and support in elderly and disabled care.
The screen of the activity table is a high-quality, multi-touch screen. This meets the high demands of everyday care and support. Adapted to the target group, the screen is shock-resistant and has a splash-proof surface on which a glass of water can also spill without causing any problems. The touchscreen is ideal for group work: Firstly, because of its size, as you can sit at it like at a table with several other people. Secondly, because of its fast reaction time and the twelve simultaneously detected touch points.
The screen is offered in a size of 43 inches; based on experience, this is the ideal size as it is ideally suited for both individual care and group care.
The user-friendly operation of De BeleefTV makes it easy to use for caregivers as well as volunteers, relatives and visitors. No special technical skills are needed to use the activity table. The activity table is equipped with a powerful ThinClient. In addition to the installed software packages for the De BeleefTV, this enables equally secure Internet use.
The HDMI connection turns De BeleefTV into an external screen. De BeleefTV is unbreakable and mobile. This makes it an ideal playback medium for video chats with relatives and presentations for service meetings, for example.
For mobile applications
The activity table can be used throughout the facility and is easy to move around. The whole house benefits from this: from the various living areas to the communal and therapy rooms to the residents’ private rooms.
Electrical height adjustment
De BeleefTV is height-adjustable, so all types of chairs as well as wheelchairs can be placed around it. For safety, the mechanism is equipped with a sensor and the screen stops as soon as resistance is sensed.
Tiltable through 90 degrees
The activity table can be tilted through 90 degrees with two simple handles and can therefore be used as a table or board. The special feature is that the screen can be locked every 15 degrees and can thus also be used with a slight tilt – making it very wheelchair-friendly and ideal for individual care.
The frame of De BeleefTV is designed so that wheelchairs can be pushed up to the activity table from two sides.
Specially developed software packages are available for De BeleefTV. The applications have been developed in collaboration with care facilities and are regularly improved with the help of feedback and expanded with new material and games. Currently, there are more than 12 software packages for disability care or different forms of dementia.
Depending on the target group, we pursue different goals in software development, including, for example: biography work, strengthening communication, promoting motor skills, relaxation or activation. It is particularly important for us to evoke joy, to break through apathetic behaviour, to arouse curiosity, as well as to create a sense of achievement and a sociable atmosphere.
