From virtually skiing the peaks of Italy, to the cycling trails of the Tour de France, LudoFit helps seniors enjoy fun, accessible and effective fitness activities in their own homes. Before founding Ludica Health, Mark developed multimedia installations for museums and science centers, to engage and inspire people using motion-sensing and computer vision technology. Ludica Heath’s flagship product, Jintronix, is currently used in over 300 rehabilitation facilities in North America. LudoFit, their newest program, is a strength and balance video-game software for adults, accessed through a downloadable app for laptop and iPad that combines captivating outdoor landscapes, evidence-based exercises, and enjoyable video-game experiences.
