Sentrics Partners with Spiro100 to Provide TV-Based Access to Senior-Friendly Exercises
Jan 6, 2020—Sentrics, today announced a partnership with senior living exercise leader Spiro100 to give residents one-click access to safe exercises from their apartment TVs. Sentrics is offering the service, which typically requires a resident login and password, to residents of senior living communities through its Engage360SM whole-health engagement platform. The now available platform gives seniors direct access to the senior-safe exercises without fumbling with computer-based logins or registering for a scheduled group class. The solution, which gives residents a simple path to access chair, chair-assisted and standing exercises through their apartment TVs, eliminates the embarrassment and time constraints of joining a group class while improving resident strength, independence and confidence.
“While community restrictions on group activities have impacted the physical fitness of senior living community residents, the real casualty is on their mental health and sense of wellbeing,” said Darin LeGrange, CEO of Sentrics. “With HRSA reporting that 43 percent of older adults already struggling with loneliness, the lack of exercise-induced endorphins impacts their outlook even more. Engage360 combats those issues by offering a series of mind, body and spirit applications to residents. Partnering with Spiro100 gives residents the ability to access safe exercises through a device they already know and trust—their TV—while decreasing the impact of isolation.”
Sentrics, is the emerging technology leader in senior living. Last month, it announced the availability of Engage360, a whole-health engagement platform that works through the resident’s TV. It gives residents multiple ways to interact with their community, family, friends and the healthcare ecosystem right from their apartment TV.
Spiro100 provides on-demand fitness and meditation videos for older adults. It is the nation’s leading web-based senior exercise / wellness resource with more than 100 full-length classes produced and led by nationally recognized senior wellness experts.
“The benefits of increased movement include improving senior balance, sleep, digestion, and cognition, as well as releasing endorphins and alleviating isolation and boredom,” said Howard Rochestie, Co-Founder and Chief of Strategy at Spiro100. “We are singularly focused on helping seniors live more active and independent lives wherever they are. Partnering with Sentrics makes it even easier for residents to access our classes without worrying about logins, passwords and WiFi connectivity issues.”
Engage360 is part of the comprehensive, data-driven Sentrics360SM software suite, which creates a 360-degree view—physical, medical, social and behavioral—of the wellbeing of each resident. It is available today and includes the seamless integration of Spiro100.
