A total of 12 Motiview bikes, licences and smart televisions have been purchased to support residents to be more physically and cognitively active across mid and south Essex, UK.
Tricia D’Orsi, NHS Alliance director for south east Essex, said: “We are constantly seeking innovative ways to improve the wellbeing of those in our care.
“The purchase of these bikes will support our residents to be both physically and cognitively active with the goal of faster rehabilitation and improvement to physical and mental wellbeing.
“I am confident this pilot will be a success, allowing us to increase provision across mid and south Essex.”
