Elderly people are frequently affected by a decline of mental and physical abilities, which results in anxiety, frailty, loneliness and reclusiveness. Often these persons live alone, spatially separated from their families and friends, not able to meet or visit them on a regular basis. The risk of developing dementia can be reduced by playing challenging games, interacting with other people and doing physical exercises. Therefore, TACTILE will provide a user-friendly solution that addresses these challenges by providing a mixed reality software that offers board games that can be played remotely with family or friends, and physical training exercises accompanied by a virtual avatar.
