Augment Therapy is an interactive software that uses the medium of augmented reality to engage kids to exercise. Using depth-sensing camera technology, Augment Therapy functions as a motivational tool, exercise prompt, and progress tracker for children needing therapeutic exercise – with no headsets or other wearables required. It can be used in the hospital and clinical setting or in the home environment – any place where added motivation is needed!

Augment Therapy looks like a game to the child, but solves real problems of exercise adherence – its portability and anywhere/anytime access make the completion of daily therapeutic exercise simple, convenient, and fun!

Steve Blake is a software developer and entrepreneur specializing in augmented reality and virtual reality. Steve’s career in the tech industry has spanned over 30 years, with the last 8 years focused primarily on creating literacy software and animated content for children with Lexia Learning Systems. Steve’s work as a software developer is supplemented by his background in music composition which he uses to facilitate engagement, particularly in software meant for children.

Steve is passionate about motivating children through music and believes that kids aren’t given enough credit for their open and sophisticated musical taste. Even the youngest children respond positively to “classical” music and instruments and are fascinated by music from different cultures. Once exposed to quality emotionally charged music, they can’t get enough!
