What are the benefits for residents in Retirement Villages, Aged care and Rest homes etc. in playing with Poi? "We've always believed there are many benefits from co-ordination to increased brain power" says Malcolm Crawshay, Founder of Home of Poi. "So it's wonderful that someone has decided to apply research techniques to measure what effects Poi can have".

This study by Kate Riegle - Van West reveals what specific benefits can be attributed to elderly playing with Poi.

Kate has just released a documentary about the study, and also some qualitative results which you can see here:
