Event Summary
The Malaysian Aging Research Institute (MyAgeingâ„¢) will organize a seminar titled: Cognitive Empowerment of the Elderly Through Smart Mobile Game Applications and Virtual Reality Technology, especially for eligible and interested PAWE Putrajaya members. Course participation is free and the organization of the course is fully borne by MyAgeingâ„¢. Participation and further details for this seminar can be obtained from the management of PAWE Putrajaya.

Seminar summary: Due to changing times, many seniors do not benefit fully from the use of digital technology that is increasingly "trending" including virtual reality technology (virtual reality, VR). VR, which is widely used in video games, can be used for the health of the elderly. Research shows that VR can improve the cognitive abilities and mental health of the elderly either directly or indirectly. Therefore in line with the current needs, MyAgeing will organize this seminar aimed at revealing the use of VR applications and also the benefits of these applications to the elderly community.
