ikiMove – more than exerciseIkimove is a streamable video series for facilities housing seniors, focusing on rehabilitation, injury prevention and increase in overall well-being.
Every episode is filmed in the breathtaking scenery of rural Finland in various locations, capturing every season in its unique presentation. This nature driven approach, combined with carefully crafted soundscapes to induce focus and relaxation makes for a completely unique and immersive experience for the viewer. Every exercise is crafted by our professional physiotherapist to increase strength, improve balance, coordination and stretch.
These routines are not your typical stimulus-oriented exercises. They are designed to actually rehabilitate with tangible results. We offer a unique combination of rehabilitating physical exercises with a meditative travel experience to the pristine nature of Finland. This is why ikimove is more than an exercise routine, it’s an experience!
Experienced clinical physiotherapist, Master of Health Sciences (exercise science)I have an extensive history of working with clients of all ages with various challenges to their performance and function. For the last few years, my main focus has been in developing a rehabilitating exercise therapy for seniors, to prevent accidents (e.g. hip fractures) that hinder normal independent function in daily routines. Since most exercises designed for the elderly are not geared towards actual rehabilitation of past injuries and the prevention of future ones, ikiMove was created to combine exercises that actually work with mood improving and stress reducing aspects, to maintain and improve the quality of life for seniors everywhere!
Sound Designer, Composer, Master of Arts (sound design)I´m a sound designer and a composer, with a long history of working in theatre, radio, animation and movies, both as a part of collaborations and as an independent artist. My aim in the ikiMove series is to craft an exclusive soundscape for each individual episode, to maximize the viewer´s focus on the exercises at hand, but to also provide an aesthetically pleasing audio environment to induce a positive mindstate, and reduce stress levels with a kind of meditative travel experience to the filming location. ikiMove combines the expertise of two individuals from seemingly different fields in to a unique experience that is truly more than the sum of it´s parts!
