About the Tovertafel
The Tovertafel, or “Magic Table,” is a special gaming system created by the Dutch company Active Cues in 2015. It’s like a video game console, but designed for healthcare use. The system includes a high-quality projector, infrared sensors, a speaker, and a processor. It projects interactive games onto almost any table.
The Tovertafel is made for places like disability therapy hubs, aged-care facilities, day-cares, libraries, and schools. It’s specifically designed for people with cognitive challenges. There are different versions for various groups, such as those with dementia, intellectual disabilities, and children with developmental delays. It’s a fun and engaging way to improve the well-being of individuals in these settings.

How the Tovertafel Amazes
Thanks to the handy click-and-go system, the Tovertafel is quick and easy to install. From wheelchair trays to the floor, the games can be used on almost any surface.
The games consist of interactive light projections in which smart technology detects even the smallest movements. This makes the playing experience distinctive, intuitive, and enchanting.
Every single time.
Tovertafel for Adults Living with Intellectual Disability
Experience the magic of interactive games designed for adults living with intellectual disability. The Tovertafel adapts to each player’s level, fostering development and boosting self-confidence without the fear of mistakes.
Tovertafel for people Living with Dementia
Join us in improving the well-being of people living with dementia. The Tovertafel’s interactive games, tailored for this demographic, can be enjoyed individually or in groups. Proven to enhance physical, cognitive, social, and sensory aspects, these games stimulate movement, social interaction, and moments of happiness.
The Tovertafel offers a wide variety of enjoyable games designed to be engaging and featuring familiar objects. Some are a bit more challenging, involving numbers or language, but most focus on delightful and colorful light displays with images from nature or everyday life.
Imagine vibrant and intensely colored flowers dancing across the table in the Flowers game. It’s exceptionally beautiful and great for newcomers or those with visual impairments. Players can interact by rubbing the flower projection on the table, causing the flower to grow. Since gardening and flowers are popular topics, it provides a wonderful conversation starter. This game is not only social but also encourages a lot of movement.
Experience the essence of autumn in the Leaves game! Projected leaves gently breeze across the table, prompting players to instinctively ‘throw’ the leaves, reminiscent of a playful woodland walk. Bright ladybirds popping up between the leaves add joy and surprise. This game often triggers delightful memories and is fantastic for promoting physical movement.
A true multisensory experience, this game is wonderful for stimulating all the senses. By moving their arm or body across the rainbow, players can reveal colours, sounds, and stars.
Feedback from parters and carers indicates that this is one of the best games to play with adults living with intellectual disabilities. Players take the ball from the puppies and roll it away, who will then retreive the ball with their tails wagging, giving them a sense of satisfaction.
This game asks players to remember the right groceries and put them into the basket. They’ll eaven hear the scanner ‘beep,’ encouraging them to keep going as they make their way through the list.
Every time we play a Tovertafel game, I see one of our clients transform into a completely different and assertive woman!
