Improving the Health, Wellbeing and Happiness of our older adults living with Dementia

Scientific background

Ping Pong (or Table Tennis) has long been termed the world’s Number 1 ‘brain sport’ because it causes players to use up to 5 areas of the brain simultaneously, including the Primary Motor Cortex, Hippocampus and Prefrontal Cortex.

Clinical studies since 1997 have shown that people with brain conditions such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s experience a boost in brain function and awareness after playing for just a few minutes. Regular players enjoyed physical, mental and emotional improvements, including greater long term capacity for memory, concentration and reactive behaviour.

The key conclusion from these studies has been that Ping Pong can slow the progress of Dementia, which is why it is often used as a drug free therapy for those affected by early and mid-stage Dementia.

 

If you’re buying for a Care Home. . .

The T3 Foundation Table works out at a small price for a world of Health, Wellbeing and Happiness benefits for your residents. It costs just £4.99 per resident per year (or £5.74 for the complete kit), based on an average 50-bed care home and assuming a 2 year product lifespan. The table should in fact last much longer than 2 years.

 

And if space is a bit tight in your care home, you can just use it like a normal table when it’s not being used for T3. It’s a table for all uses – afternoon tea, playing games, writing. So there’s no need to find extra space, or get it out and put it away every time you want to use it for T3 sessions.

 

T3 Ping Pong – making a real difference

T3 Ping Pong is the first innovation in table tennis in decades. 3-a-side, played on a round table, and designed specifically for those affected by Dementia. T3 takes the health, wellbeing and happiness benefits of table tennis to a whole new level. 

“It’s a miracle game for the elderly. I’ve never seen my mother so engaged.” – daughter of a 97-year-old player with Alzheimer’s, London

“This for me is the best thing I’ve seen in Health and Wellbeing in a long time. I don’t know why there isn’t one in every care home in the country. It’s very straightforward, simple and easy to use. It’s like it’s designed to cater for disability.” – Care Home Activities Co-ordinator, London

 

T3 conducted its own 3-stage Research study amongst adults affected by Dementia and Alzheimer’s over a 6 month period in 2016. This revealed similar beneficial effects:

  • Helping social cognitive behaviour
  • Improving reactions and memory
  • Overwhelming positive emotional response to the game
  • Keeping players stimulated, active and engaged
  • Real happiness and fun playing

 

Designed specifically for those living with Dementia

Everything about the T3 Foundation Table has been designed especially for people living with Dementia. In particular it is the perfect height to play seated in a chair or wheelchair, as well as standing, so that anyone of any ability can play. In addition, the black playing surface makes it much easier for those living with Dementia to follow and hit the ball. Plus the solid wood net means the ball comes back to the player rather than getting stuck in the net, making it much easier to play. The unique light weight bats suitable even for the weakest grip, and the orange balls being much easier to follow and hit*
*the light weight bats and orange balls are part of the complete kit

 

More inclusive, more social, more fun

Inclusivity is at the heart of T3. Anyone can play – different abilities and disabilities, young and old can all play together. It’s one of the few sports where size, age and gender are irrelevant competitive factors. With up to 6 people playing, it’s also much more sociable, as well as fun, laughter and excitement all the way!
