With focus and effort, everyone can get the ball moving, irrespective of age or ability. Qbi encourages everyone in a playful way to make more of an effort while moving and to concentrate more and longer than usual. There is laughter, cheering, clapping, and an indescribable sense of accomplishment when you succeed. ‘It’s a truly fascinating feeling to control the ball with your body without touching it!’
Qbi instantly grabs the attention of both individuals and groups
Qbi encourages people to move, especially those with a mild physical and/or intellectual disability. Everyone can participate at their own level. Qbi offers a suitable activity for exercise therapy at the individual and group level and is the perfect addition to activity programmes that focus on movement. The moving ball encourages muscle activity and movements that would otherwise not be stimulated. Subconsciously, muscles are used that would not otherwise be activated. Because of this, even muscles affected by brain injury can be trained effectively. Additional benefits include better coordination and stimulation of relevant nerve systems.
Qbi grabs your attention and focus in a fun way. Through this interaction, all attention is focused on moving the ball in the right direction. Subconsciously, everybody seeks the limits of their physical abilities. This makes Qbi an effective tool and offers you plenty of application possibilities within the field of disabled care.
With Qbi more active in life
A paraplegic fourteen-year-old girl who could still move her head asked Qineto to develop software that would allow her to control the ball with her head. These movements helped her to maintain muscle strength in her neck. She is extremely happy to be able to move the ball on the floor and join in a game with other children.
Positive effects of Qbi on the general well-being of people with a disability
Qbi has been proven in several disabled care facilities to have a positive effect on the general well-being of people with one or more disabilities. These positive effects were found on the physical, cognitive, and social level. Qbi is a playful way to encourage people to make more of an effort while moving and to concentrate more and longer than usual. This focus helps to reduce pain symptoms. Interaction, distraction, and a sense of control encourages people to push past their movement limitations.
Qbi: a unique form of positive experiential therapy
Qbi is a unique way to get people moving. Young and old alike in the health care sector have responded enthusiastically to controlling the ball without touching it. ‘Is it magic? One thing’s for certain: controlling the ball is a feeling unlike any other.’ Qbi fascinates people and immediately grabs their attention! For most people, Qbi is a way to have fun as a group, to encourage each other, and to relax. With Qbi, exercise therapy becomes a form of positive experiential therapy.
This is an incredible device and we’ve noticed that our clients really enjoy it. It challenges them to get active and encourages them to make focused, coordinated movements. It’s also a fun way to improve balance, which reduces the risk of falling. Plus it encourages social interaction with others, as everybody supports each other from the sidelines.

Qbi is challenging but also relaxing. I use a wheelchair, which means I spend a lot of time sitting still, but Qbi helps me to really move again! Marleen Widdershoven (67), client at a health care facility
