The Center for Playware project on modular playware tiles for rehabilitation in sub-Saharan Africa has won the 1st Prize at the Tanzanian ICT Summit in Dar Es-Salaam. 

The project is a collaboration with University of Iringa, Tanzania, and is investigating how modular playware tiles can be used for playful physical rehabilitation for many diverse patient groups (handicapped children, stroke, cardiac, diabetic patients, etc.) in both urban and rural areas, and how it motivates the users through play to perform physical rehabilitative actions. The system can be easily used by rehabilitation workers, and through the modularity it is robust to failure (e.g. power failure) in remote areas.
