Israeli Startup Creates Gaming Platform to Improve Motor Skills of Disabled Youth

In keeping with Israel’s lead in developing tools to assist the disabled, the Tel Aviv-based startup Timocco  – which has created an on-line gaming platform for special-needs children — is making welcome strides internationally.

Established in 2009 by Israeli occupational therapist Sarit Tresser and motion-tracking engineer Shai Yagur, Timocco recently announced that it was granted a patent in the United Kingdom for its unique technology, perfectly suited for use by wheelchair-bound youngsters, or those who suffer from spastic cerebral palsy and/or other motor, cognitive and communication disabilities.
